Reuters reports Clashes Break Out in France as 'Yellow Vests' Stage Latest Protest

Clashes broke out throughout France on Saturday, as an estimated 84,000 "yellow vests" demonstrators took to the streets in a 10th consecutive weekend of protests against President Emmanuel Macron's government.

The fuel tax hikes were subsequently scrapped, yet the movement has morphed into a broader protest against Macron's government and general anger over taxes and the cost of living. "How can we continue to live with so little?" said Bernard Grignan, a 65-year old retired manager who took part in the Paris demonstrations.

In Paris, some demonstrators carried mock coffins symbolizing the 10 people who have died during the protests, mainly due to accidents when demonstrators blocked roads.

December's demonstrations saw some of the worst violence in decades in Paris, as rioters burned cars and vandalized shops. Despite a relative decline in crowd trouble in Paris, however, disturbances have flared up in other cities.
