Protests in France rage on for a 13th consecutive weekend

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

French police fired tear gas at "yellow vest" protesters in Paris on Saturday (February 9) as demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron's government entered a 13th weekend.

Demonstrators began marching at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, the monument at the top of the French capital's Champs Elysees, and the scene of violent clashes against riot police during previous protests.

They then marched to the National Assembly buildings where police fired tear gas after protesters vandalised the walls around the building which is currently under construction.

The protests - named after the fluorescent jackets French motorists are required to carry in their cars - began in mid-November over plans to raise fuel taxes before developing into a broader revolt against the government that mobilised tens of thousands of demonstrators nation-wide each Saturday.

About 1,000 police officers have been injured along with 1,700 demonstrators since the start of the protests, according to official figures.
