System in crisis! Protests rage after desperate French student sets himself on fire over financial pressures

The financial worries of French university students are so bad that one Lyon student set himself on fire in protest, calling out President Emmanuel Macron, the EU, and other politicians for creating a system that breaks people.

After taking a helicopter to a constitutional anniversary last year at the burial site of General Charles de Gaulle, Macron’s reverie was interrupted by a group of pensioners who took the opportunity to express concerns about their finances.

In response, Macron said that de Gaulle was right when he said: “You may speak very freely, but the one thing you have no right to do is complain.” He advised the protesters to follow this principle.
