Protests against climate-change fuel taxes rage in Europe, similar to populism in Trump's base in the US, anti-globalist

Tim Pool reports Sunday that white working class people from rural areas are protesting in France and several other countries, as “Yellow Jackets”. including Germany and the Netherlands.
The protests have blocked many roads and damaged cars and property.
Macron may consider a State of Emergency.
The protests seemed to be about the climate-change-driven fuel taxes. These are affecting rural areas more than the cities. 
Just as with Trump supporters, this “forgotten majority” is opposing globalism, but moreover the idea of making sacrifices now for future generations – the ultimate challenge of climate change.   

How will these protests interact with the Copyright Directive and Article 13?  Suppose there is pressure for more countries to leave the EU?
