'At the end I ask myself why I work just to survive' man who had 'yellow vest' idea tells Euronews17

Amidst another weekend of violent unrest in cities across France, Euronews interviewed Ghislain Coutard — the man behind the yellow vest idea.

A month before the first roadblocks, Coutard responded to a call to action on Facebook by posting his own video, which would quickly go viral. In it, Coutard suggests people place a yellow safety vest on their car’s dashboard as a symbol of solidarity, earning the movement its worldwide famous name.

Coutard — who did not go to Paris this weekend — spoke to Euronews about why he put up the video, why he joined the movement, and what it would take for the protests to stop.
