Police officers used a water cannon to disperse the yellow vest protests at Champs Elysee, Sputnik correspondent reported from the scene.
While these protesters are planning to walk around three miles during their march, another group of protesters is holding a sit-in demonstration. They are going to sit at the Champ de Mars in downtown Paris during the whole day.
Almost 40,000 people took part in yellow vest protests across France last Saturday, including 4,000 in Paris. The number of protesters has decreased significantly since last November, when the rallies started.
Large-scale demonstrations began in France on 17 November last year in the wake of the government's decision to raise fuel taxes. Despite the French authorities later discarding their plans, the yellow vests protesters, dissatisfied with the government's social policies, have continued to rally across the country.
