While you wouldn’t know it by following America’s legacy media, citizens across the globe are expressing widespread dissatisfaction with their respective government’s failed leadership.
Whether it’s at the ballot box or in the streets, tens of thousands of people are openly rejecting the globalist ethos permeating governments worldwide that has resulted in higher costs of living, skyrocketing energy prices, and the increasing difficulty among citizens to address their families’ basic needs.
As of July 5, 2022, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace had recorded protests of more than 120,000 people in France, 100,000 in Sprain, 10,000 in Greece, Kazakhstan, Sri Lanka and India. Protests were also recorded in Ecuador, Belgium, The Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic, Peru, Turkey, Israel, South Korea, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Indonesia, Lebanon, and Iran. The backlash has been broad in both message and scope.
Italians voiced their anger by burning energy bills while chanting “Now it will be chaos,” after being asked to turn down the heat starting in October to help curb energy use. The government has also placed limits on the use of central heat in public buildings. The EU sanctions on Russia and the government’s acceleration toward green energy are expected to leave Italians to face a rough winter.
At least 70,000 protestors recently showed up in Prague to protest their government’s handling of the energy crisis and to express their opposition to the EU and NATO and demanding the resignation of the current coalition government for paying more attention to war-torn Ukraine than to its own citizens. The protest was a direct result of electricity and gas prices that is destroying the economy. There is another protest scheduled for September 28.
About 2,000 anti-government demonstrators gathered outside New Zealand’s parliament to protest a range of issues that included environmental regulations for farmers, the government’s attempt to take over regionally owned water assets and COVID restrictions.
In the Netherlands thousands of farmers have been protesting for months over new environmental regulations pushed by the EU and WEF that would require them to kill off a minimum of 30% of their livestock to support biodiversity. The Netherlands is one of the largest countries in the world when it comes to the export of agricultural goods like meat, dairy, eggs, vegetables and fruit which explains why they are being targeted.
Polish farmers in Warsaw have joined in the protests to support the farmers in the Netherlands, concerned they will be next in line. They also accused the political class of destabilizing production by raising interest rates in a failed attempt to stabilize inflation. 3.8 million in Poland that rely on coal for heating and now face shortages and price hikes, after Poland and the European Union imposed an embargo on Russian coal following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February. As winter draws near, people are waiting, even sleeping in their cars for days, to buy what little coal is available.
Protests have grown in Germany as farmers voice concerns with rising inflation, destructive climate policies that are threatening their livelihood and the global food supplies. Due to sanctions against the import of Russian oil, German officials are already rationing hot water and dimming streetlights. More energy saving regulations are in the works. Households are reverting back to woodstoves and cleaning out their fireplaces before winter begins. Sales of coal, wood pellets and firewood has caused some shortages. Without Russian oil they will be facing a very cold winter.
Spain, with a 10% plus inflation rate, is seeing thousands on the streets protesting energy prices. With a high unemployment rate at 14% during the first quarter of this year, labor shortages are raising prices on staple grocery items to a 30 year high.
Greece’s weakened economy has seen thousands on the streets protesting inflation and rising fuel prices. Natural gas prices had already skyrocketed 156% by early January.
In India, an estimated 50 million workers went on a two-day strike in March to protest the loss of jobs and a 27% inflation rate that had increased living costs for everyone.
In Argentina thousands are protesting the 58% plus inflation rate. Prices are liquid with iPhones costing 5 months’ rent and a two hour plane ticket equaling the cost of a month’s college tuition.
The UK is suffering from high inflation and many Brits have reached the end of their rope. They flocked out in February to protest in at least 25 cities and towns with signs reading tax the rich and freeze prices, not the poor. In June thousands marched down central London wanting the government to boost its welfare response.
Sri Lanka has collapsed. Angry crowds chased down and killed wealthy people as food and fuel shortages hit. Over 200 dead so far – police are using live rounds. It’s anarchy vs. the police state.
Panama is on the verge of collapsing as mass demonstrations against the increased cost of food, fuel and basic services, take place. Transporters and farmers in Peru have set up indefinite roadblocks to protest against rising fuel and fertilizer prices.
Ghana is also suffering severe food shortages and hunger. In June, protestors clashed with police in the capital of Accra protesting fuel hikes, a tax on electronic payments and spiraling inflation. When people get hungry things go sideways fast.
There is a thin line in society between food and anarchy, freedom and repression, liberty and tyranny, safety and street violence. It’s thinner than we want to admit and it’s being pushed to its limits on purpose by ideologies that want to deconstruct society. It’s a dangerous game.
