Yellow Vest Protest
France has witnessed four consecutive weekends of demonstrations against fuel tax rises, high living costs and other issues.
The protest became known as the "yellow vest" or "gilets jaunes" movement because protesters took to the streets wearing the high-visibility yellow jackets that are required to be carried in every vehicle by French law.
The original “Yellow Vest” protests were dominated by working-class people who were upset over fuel tax increase and their declining living standards.
Protests have also erupted over other issues, including calls for higher wages, lower taxes, better pensions and easier university entry requirements.
The widely supported movement's core aim is to highlight the economic frustration and political distrust of poorer working families.
