Initially, the protests were focused on a hike in diesel duty however they have become generalised and have targeted a broad range of policies that are contributing to a spiraling cost of living especially in rural France.
Over 100,000 people took part in the demonstrations across France however there were angry and violent scenes in Paris.
Protesters tried to break through a police cordon around the Champs-Élysées designed to protect key government buildings.
They lit fires, tore down street signs, erected barricades, pulled up paving stones and hurled them at police while shouting slogans against Mr Macron. Rather than being organised the protests appear to be spontaneous and uniting people across the political spectrum.
Lucy Williamson reports for the BBC: “This is a movement with no recognised national leader, no formal structure or affiliation, which unites voters of all ages, from the far-left, the far-right, even those who once supported President Macron.”
It seems the darling of globalism and Eurofedralism is in severe trouble.
