Hitler would be envious I’m sure. Total surveillance & control all from your handy smart phone. Two articles here updating the papers requirement from the esteemed authorities to leave your house. Getting very Orwellian isn’t it? NZ is following suit with Police checkpoints over Easter we’ve just heard. In case you dare to head off somewhere different and cater to the state of your non-essential mental health. EWR
“Taking exercise is one of the official reasons that people are allowed out of their homes during the lockdown – along with trips to buy food, medical appointments, urgent family reasons and trips to and from work for people whose work is essential and cannot be done from home.”
Outdoor physical activity will be restricted to a radius of 2 kilometres from home during the coronavirus lockdown, the French government said on Thursday, while cycling is completely banned.
This is a bit like accounts of pre war Germany isnt it … passes required to move about & alone only? Also intriguing that these officials are wearing no protective gear to keep them safe from the deadly virus? My thoughts… always practice the precautionary principle & stay safe … EWR
“If you want to exercise you have to live in the vicinity, and must do so on your own, can’t go out together! Can only have extra person in car if they have no license, or have no car and you’re helping, or they are disabled.”
A reliable source who lives in France has alerted us to what’s going on both there and in most of Europe right now. Not persons to panic they say (normally “glass half full or probably overflowing”) right now they report that their glass is shattered!
“It’s really scary here…the entire country…over 80 million of us are on lock down in our homes. We CANNOT leave our houses without a government issued permission form, and that’s only to get essential food or medical supplies. There are fines for not carrying the form and it’s one form for each person. You need a new form for EVERY time you want to leave your home. It’s basically a signed attestation by you of your purpose for being found outside. You cannot even walk your dog outside your property without it!!!
Everything is closed, there is no panic buying…there is nothing to buy!!!
There are 100,000 police and Gendarmes enforcing this. Some Hotels have been taken over by the army to use as hospitals. Toilet paper is the least of our worries…we have no printer ink to print the form to allow us to leave the house to try to get some from the only store that’s allowed to open, which is the supermarket!! We’re fine and have a good network around us and a full pantry, but many aren’t.
Sorry to be alarmist but you seriously don’t want to see NZ like this!!?
If you want to exercise you have to live in the vicinity, and must do so on your own, can’t go out together! Can only have extra person in car if they have no license, or have no car and you’re helping, or they are disabled.
Also as of today the fines went up for breaking the law, it’s now €135 And €350! (Every 100 euro is about $190NZ).”
Note: Police are recruited on a local basis and are paid by the town they work in (except special police). Gendarmes are a military force and are recruited on a county or national level.

The revolt of French citizens against speed cameras resulted in a record number of speed cameras being destroyed or otherwise disabled in 2019. Government officials warned that the lack of automated ticketing would have a demonstrably negative impact on road safety. The latest official accident tally, however, recorded 3239 road fatalities in 2019 — a 0.3 percent reduction compared to the prior year, and an all-time low. Injury accidents declined 1.1 percent.
The attacks continued last week. On Sunday, vigilantes in Crest fired two rounds into the speed camera on the RD538 in Crest. The device had just been installed four days earlier. On Saturday, the speed camera in Fitou was set on fire. Yellow spraypaint blinded the speed camera on the ring road in Toulouse, with multiple cameras covered throughout the area on Wednesday. On January 26, the turret speed camera on the RD944 in Molosmes was cut down just three days after it had been installed. A speed camera site was replaced by an impromptu art exhibit last week on the RD13 near Velle-le-Chatel. The six-foot-tall “Rat d’Art” was put in place on January 25.

Think they don’t want us to catch on that not accepting cuts to our entitlements and living standards is an option?
Last weekend saw French people stage huge protests against the Macron government’s plans to slash their pension entitlements.
It was the 59th consecutive weekend of such protests.
December has also seen the country in a state of ‘grève interprofessionel’ – a general strike – across a wide range of professions, from the nations’s rail-workers to the Paris Opéra’s ballet dancers.
The scale of the protests and strike have been huge, with around 800,000 workers participating in the strike and massive crowds on the streets in Paris and elsewhere. And the government’s response has descended into brutality:
Following the recent bans on the use of glyphosate-based herbicides by cities and institutions in the U.S., including Key West, Los Angeles, the University of California and Miami, Sustainable Pulse decided to research which countries around the world have banned or restricted the use of the world’s most used herbicide.
This research has led to the discovery that there is a growing swell of government level support worldwide for bans on glyphosate-based herbicides for both health and environmental reasons.
17 countries have now banned or restricted the use of this carcinogenic herbicide.
Previous research by Sustainable Pulse on the number of countries that have banned GM Crops has reached millions of people and we look forward to our latest research reaching an even wider audience. Sustainable Pulse welcomes additions or edits to the list below from readers and experts from around the Globe.
Malawi: Malawi’s Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development announced the suspension of import permits for glyphosate in April 2019.
Vietnam: Vietnam announced that it banned the import of all glyphosate-based herbicides with in March 2019 following a cancer trial verdict from San Francisco
Sri Lanka: In 2015 a full import ban on all glyphosate-based herbicides was put in place by the then newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena. This ban was partly lifted in July 2018 but only for use on tea and rubber plantations.
A French court has ordered the removal of the controversial Linky electricity smart meters from 13 homes, for medical reasons.
The tribunal de grande instance (TGI or the civil court) of Tours considered the case of 121 “anti-Linky” complainants, and threw out 108 of the claims. The remaining 13 were accepted, with the court conceding a possible link between their medical complaints and their Linky smart meters.
One included a seven-year-old child living in Tours, who was – the court said – in “a state of chronic fatigue” and having “difficulty sleeping”, as proven in a medical note, “which could be linked to the Linky meter”.
The court demanded that in the case of these 13 individuals, the Linky meter be removed, and the households be delivered electricity without the device.
Lawyer for the complainants, Arnaud Durand, said that he would push for compensation for “the people who will not be able to live at home”.
In June 2017, medical safety agency L’Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire (Anses) concluded that the meters could be linked to some “health doubts” – including the possible consequences of exposure to electromagnetic fields.
These have not yet been resolved, according to Me Durand.
He is now hoping to bring more cases against the installation of the Linky meter throughout France.
The country has already seen 22 cases brought to court, including in Rennes, Toulouse, and Bordeaux. Most claims were thrown out, except for a few complainants who cited “electro-sensitivity” to the meters.
The Linky was first rolled out by electricity distribution network company Enedis in 2015. The meters enable electricity use to be measured remotely, so users are charged without a need for a manual reading by the homeowner or an engineer.
Homeowners are also expected to save up to €50 per year on their bills.
A must read & watch! The Yellow Vests, State sanctioned Police violence on unarmed Yellow Vest protesters, including the aged, disabled & children. What mainstream media will not (ever) be telling you. This is from an independent journalist on the ground.
That’s right: Before investigators had even been cleared to enter the smoldering ruins of the Western World’s most iconic Christian symbol, they had already ruled out the possibility of arson.
I am not saying that any person or group should be blamed for this fire without proof. What I am saying, is that the French government’s absurdly quick action in determining the cause makes a mockery of the concept of an honest investigation. Such malfeasance in carrying out due diligence could easily backfire.
Without an honest and transparent investigation, people will always look at the burning of Notre Dame as a monumental conspiracy. Fill in the blank as to who you want to make responsible for the devastation because the French wimped out and declared it an accident before any investigative techniques could have realistically been employed.
In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News, a German news site, explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”
In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or “migrant”) identity of the destroyers is leaked, the desecraters are then presented as suffering from mental health issues.
“Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.” — PI News, March 24, 2019
