Yellow Vests protesters have gathered this Saturday in Paris to hold another demonstration, nearly a month after the movement celebrated its one-year anniversary, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The demonstrations started on 17 November 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 Macron’s resignation, among other things.
