Ruptly is live from Paris on Saturday, September 12, as the ‘Yellow Vests’ resume their campaign against planned pension reforms by marching through the streets of the French capital.
The protest is taking place after France noted an increase in the number of coronavirus infections across the country. It also comes after the mandatory use of face masks in certain busier areas of Paris was established in August. The French government has limited the maximum number of participants to 5,000 for larger gatherings.
The ‘Yellow Vests’ movement began as a grassroots citizen protest in November 2018 and quickly spread across mainland France, with participants demanding what they see as economic and social justice.
