In France, over 100,000 people took to the streets across the country Saturday in the ongoing dispute over mounting fuel prices. More than 400 people were arrested, and 260 were injured, in the third weekend of demonstrations since the “yellow vest” protests started. Three people have died in traffic-related accidents since the start of the protests. Protesters are calling out the disconnect between Macron’s environmental initiatives, used to justify the fuel tax hikes, and the financial realities of many people in France.
