Yellow Vest Protesters Rally in France (+Video)
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – France’s most prominent protest movement marked one month after the one-year anniversary of the beginning of rallies that have since spread across the country.
Yellow Vest protesters have gathered this Saturday in Paris to hold another demonstration, with demonstrations leading to clashes with police and numerous arrests.
The demonstrations started on November 17, 2018, with over 280,000 people taking to the streets of French cities over fuel price hikes.
Since then, the rallies have become regular, with people taking to the streets every Saturday for over a year.
As the government abandoned its plan to raise the fuel tax, the demonstrators turned to other demands, such as lower taxes, wage hikes, and President Emmanuel Macron’s resignation, among other things.
