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
"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."
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.
