Opinion – France on the Frontline

Disturbing images from Paris this week show French riot police firing on anarchic protesters, the so-called “yellow vests” protesting against their government’s economic policies.
Such confronting scenes would not be replicated here – or could they?

Australians tend to be more civil in their political disputation but there now exists a level of political dissatisfaction which has been becoming more aggressive in its expression.
Given the ability for social media to inflame resentment, perhaps it is not too far fetched to suggest some people are already attempting to mobilise global support for the “yellow vests”.
