France’s Macron vows to use ‘all means’ to restore calm


[12/10/2018 2:05:13 PM]

AMMONNEWS - French President Emmanuel Macron is promising “all means” will be used to restore calm after the disruptive protests that have deeply shaken the nation.

On Monday night, Macron addressed France for the first time since anti-tax protests around the country turned into rioting in Paris.

Trying to sound gentle and calming, Macron acknowledged “anger and indignation” among members of the public over the cost of living.

But he also said “no indulgence” would be given to people behind the protest violence.

He said “no anger justifies” attacking police or looting stores, saying both threaten France’s cherished liberty.
