French Police Use Tear Gas on 5th Week of Yellow Vests' Protests

France has already seen four weekends of unrest after thousands took to the streets in Paris to protest high fuel prices. As demonstrations turned violent, the protestors smashed store windows and set cars on fire, prompting police to use tear gas and water cannons.

France is bracing for unrest as the Yellow Vests have been holding a rally— called Acte 5: Macron Démission (Act 5: Macron's Resignation) — for the fifth weekend, with 70,000 police officers being mobilised ahead of the demonstrations.

According to the organisers of the protests, this weekend the Yellow Vests are rallying "for social justice and tax, for a real democracy, for equal rights, for a true ecological transition."
