Paris Protests Over Fuel Prices Turn Violent

Demonstrations in Paris over the weekend turned violent as  thousands of people protested  rising fuel costs and Emmanuel Macron's presidency.

Macron's government  has imposed taxes  on diesel fuel and gasoline, in part to reduce the country's greenhouse gas emissions and to fund renewable energy.

Officials have  blamed far-right groups  for fomenting violent resistance to the taxes.  Macron is scheduled to  give a speech Tuesday  addressing the protests, which are also known as the "yellow-vest movement" for the high-visibility vests the protesters typically wear.

The demonstrations come a week after similar but much larger protests across the country  left one person dead  and hundreds more injured.  Additional reporting by  Newsy affiliate CNN .
