Tuesday, 4 December 2018 France's government on Tuesday morning said it will suspend a controversial fuel tax that triggered weeks of violent protests. The so-called "yellow vest" protests led to running battles between police and demonstrators in Paris over the weekend. The safety vests, used by broken-down drivers, symbolize the cost of fuel taxes. Protesters are upset about rising prices and a declining standard of living.
Yellow Vest protesters took to the streets of Paris on February 16 for the fourteenth consecutive Saturday since the protests began.This footage shows crowds along Place du Carrousel, near the Lourve..
