Opération Escargot

Litterally "operation snail". The acme of frenchness: if you're a grumpy truck driver or a farmer, what is the point of going on strike? Nobody would notice for weeks, until stocks start to run out. Worse, customers might switch to more reliable foreign imports. No good. The solution is to take your truck, tractor, taxi..., take to the highways, and drive in circles at the slowest possible speed. This paralyzes traffic, prevents commuters from reaching the city, blocks airports. Utter chaos. Pure bliss. Orgasmic sabotage.
