During the past four weeks, a throng of furious protesters, feeling swallowed under an avalanche of taxes, put on their “gilets jaunes” and took to the street shouting their grievance against fuel tax rises, unbearable living costs and other issues. The movement cuts across age, job and region, forcing a total reorientation of French social and economic policy.

In response to weeks of violent protests, France’s President Emmanuel Macron has promised a minimum wage rise and tax concession.
