“Maidan” in France, or a national uprising? Ollie Richardson’s compleat guide to the Gilets Jaunes

OLLIE RICHARDSON—And here is where the problem lies: since society is extremely fragmented and essentially a hodgepodge of the “fruits” of colonialism, migrants (those who have their roots outside France) don’t mind smashing things up.
