France: 'Yellow Vests' protesters hold Paris march

France, Paris
September 14, 2019 at 19:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

'Yellow Vests' protesters marched in Paris, Saturday, to bring attention to a variety of grievances against the government.

Alain, a taxi driver participating in the rally, said he fears he and his colleagues "will be dead" economically, due to fees he said could increase were there to be any airport privatisations in Paris.

Another activist expressed concerns about the unequal distribution of wealth in France and said "too many people" were starving in the country. This she said was "inadmissible in such a rich country" as France.

Since the beginning of the protests last November, 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.
