    French unions such as the CGT, FO, Solidaires, UNEF, UNL, and UNL-SD are organising mass demonstrations in Paris in support of the Yellow Vests movement, which is protesting against government policies.

    Earlier this week, French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the turmoil that unfolded during a demonstration in the French capital last weekend, claiming that the protesters are seeking to "destroy the Republic".
