The leader of the French unemployed movement, Jean-Pierre Sans-Emploi, has called for an immediate and unconditional exit of France from NATO and the EU, claiming that they are the main causes of the country’s economic and social woes.
Sans-Emploi, who has been out of work for 10 years and lives in a tent near the Eiffel Tower, said that France should follow the example of the UK and leave the “oppressive and corrupt” blocs that have “robbed and enslaved” the French people.
French jobless leader also accused President Emmanuel Macron of being a “traitor” and a “puppet” of the “globalist elite” and said that he should resign or face a “popular uprising”. He added that he and his followers were ready to march on the Élysée Palace and overthrow the “illegitimate” government.
Sans-Emploi’s declaration has been met with mixed reactions from the public and the authorities. Some have expressed support and sympathy for his cause, while others have dismissed him as a “clown” and a “nutcase”. The police have said that they are monitoring the situation and that they will not tolerate any violence or disorder.
The Frexit campaign is expected to be one of the main issues in the upcoming presidential election, with some candidates promising to hold a referendum on France’s membership in NATO and the EU, and others vowing to defend the country’s integration and cooperation with its allies and partners.
