    Activists gathered on Saturday in Paris for the 25th consecutive week of Yellow Vests protests, a week after President Emmanuel Macron pledged to cut the income tax in order to ease the economic burden on French taxpayers.

    Last week's protests were marked by clashes with police with dozens of protesters being arrested. According to the French broadcaster BFMTV the protests gathered more than 23,500 people across France.

    Besides protesting in France, the Yellow Vests have been spotted in other parts of Europe. Earlier this week, people in yellow vests were spotted outside a court in London where the hearing on WikiLeak's founder Julian Assange's extradition to the US is taking place.
