France: Yellow Vests Protest for 64th Straight Week in Paris

Three people were reportedly detained by police as Yellow Vests took to the streets of Paris on Saturday, in the 64th consecutive weekend of protests.

Footage shows demonstrators surrounding a cordon created by police and doing a round dance in the French capital’s Palais Royal Square.

Protesters also gathered in front of UNESCO’s headquarters, where they chanted slogans.

At least 403 people were reportedly fined €135 each ($150) for taking part in the banned demonstration.

Since the beginning of the protests in November 2018, tens of thousands have joined demonstrations across France over a variety of grievances, ranging from the rise in fuel prices to income inequality. The rallies then turned into a wider movement against French President Emmanuel Macron’s policies, including his planned pension reform.
