Well, there were two million people in the streets of France yesterday to protest the new retirement laws and most likely it won't change the government's decisions, so no, an internet petition wasn't enough to save online poker.
Surprisingly enough, all the French companies that applied for a licence got it already, while most of the foreign operators who applied for one haven't had the answer yet. This thing is so rigged it's ridiculous.
For those of you who undestand French, have a laugh here:
those are 3 fake websites made by the new French online gambling commission ARJEL in order to convince French players to play on regulated sites. I very much hope that legitimate gaming authorities like Malta's LGA or Alderney's GCC bring them to court for libel.
