Gilets jaunes in Paris
March 9th, the 17th Saturday in a row that the Gilets Jaunes, or “Yellow Vests,” have taken to the streets of France. These protests began in November in opposition to gas prices being raised, but have turned into an all-out revolt against the French government (President Emmanuel Macron and his policies in particular.) The Gilets Jaunes are promising a "decisive act" this weekend, with three days of protests planned.
I took these photos at l’Arc de Triomphe, showing the remnants of graffiti from a few weeks ago.
