‘Yellow Vest’ Protesters Back on the Streets of France

France’s ‘yellow vest’ protesters are taking to the streets to keep pressure on French President Emmanuel Macron’s government, for the 12th weekend running of demonstrations.

Multiple protests are planned Saturday in Paris and other cities to denounce Mr. Macron’s economic policies, seen by critics as favoring the rich.

This week, demonstrators in the French capital are planning to pay tribute to the ‘yellow vests’ injured during clashes with police.

The government says around 2,000 people have been injured in protests since the movement began 17 November, including at least 4 serious eye injuries.

Separately, 10 people have died in road incidents related to ‘yellow vest’ actions.

France’s Council of State ruled Friday that security forces have a right to use controversial high-velocity rubber ball launchers for crowd control.
