The French people are a tough lot and there's no giving up their fight. Vive the Gilets Jaune

Entering into the eleventh straight week of protest against the Macron government the "Gilet Jaune" show no sign of surrender and have organized a political party that is set to run 10 members (expanded to 79) for the EU parliament.-RP

BBC: "Gilets Jaunes launch European election bid"

"The yellow-vest protest movement in France has named 10 candidates for the May European Parliament elections, but says it aims to expand the list to 79.

The grassroots movement - "gilets jaunes" in French - grew out of fuel tax protests in November.

Topping the list is Ingrid Levavasseur, 31, a care worker raising two children alone in Normandy. She accuses the government of arrogance.

During the protests Paris has seen its most serious street clashes since 1968.

The movement embraces a wide range of people, some of whom reject any association with the current political set-up in France and the EU.

In general they see President Emmanuel Macron as a symbol of traditional French elitism, remote from the hardships of ordinary people struggling to cope with utility bills, fuel taxes, low pay and unemployment."

Act XI and the 'yellow night': What the ‘Gilets Jaunes’ have planned for France on Saturday

France’s yellow vests are gearing up for an eleventh protest weekend, with the first ‘yellow night’ march scheduled to take place in Paris on Saturday. Here's what they have planned.

More than two months after France's Gilets Jaunes protests began, the movement continues to rage on, but this weekend the ‘manif’ mood in Paris is likely to come with a twist.

Yellow night in the capital

One of the most followed Gilets Jaunes groups on Facebook has called for a “nuit jaune” (yellow night) protest in the French capital, although it is scheduled to begin rather early, at 2pm on Saturday in Place de La République.

“We’ll gather every night from this Saturday onwards, and we’ll keep coming till at least the end of the national consultation (Grand Débat),” reads the Facebook post.

“We’ll make Place de la République our giant ring road.”

The “yellow night” event has been compared in the French press to Nuit Debout, a French social movement that started in Paris on March 31 2016 against the proposed El Khomri labour laws, then spreading across many French cities.

Eric Drouet, one of the more radical figureheads of the social protest movement, has shared in the sentiment of testing out the nighttime protest event, leading more "yellow vests" to sign up.

Organisers have promised there will be no “violence of threatening behaviour” during this first nocturnal “yellow vest” demo, stating instead that it will be a march made up of “pacifist citizens” looking to denounce the “violent and undemocratic repression” of French police against the Gilets Jaunes.
