BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 P.M.) – Police and protesters continue to clash on the Champs Elysees of Paris on Saturday, with security forces deploying tear gas and water cannons.

Vehicles and trash piles were set on fire during the protests, and several shops were targeted by the protesters.

This is the fourth weekend of ‘Yellow Vest’ protests, held under the banner ‘All to the Elysee.’ The police are reportedly preventing protesters from leaving designated areas.

The Yellow Vest movement emerged last month after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy.

The French government have now suspended the prices hikes but protests continue nevertheless.

When DON’T the French protest? They’re the most entitled people in the world. They can never do their job without kicking up a fuss, they’re intolerant of the things and people they don’t like, and they’re just downright rude and entitled. Everyone is wrong but them.
