"Frankly, it's deaf, it does not show signs of pacification, people will continue more beautiful"warned Rabah, 52, who had planned to celebrate Christmas Eve on the bridge of Aquitaine in Bordeaux.

On the Champs-Elysées, the Parisian epicenter of the movement, a few dozen "yellow jackets", mixed with tourists and spectators, sang "Macron resignation" and sang Marseillaises at the time of the presidential speech.

"Impostor" and "pyromaniac"

Even the right and left opponents have criticized the wishes of Emmanuel Macron, stating that it will strengthen the mobilization of "yellow jackets". "This president is an impostor" is "An incendiary", launched Marine Le Pen in two successive tweets.

"We do not know why, but everything that says falls flat, and when we understand, we would prefer not to have listened, what lessons of lunar donors." , wrote Jean-Luc Mélenchon (insubordinate France), denuding in another tweet "The president of the rich".

Republican spokeswoman Laurence Sailliet believes the president "Recited a text without emotion, without conviction and so far from the reality of the French", while the PCF national secretary Fabien Roussel reports "A moralizing president who will continue his reforms without considering the anger, the expectations of those who simply aspire to live better".
