Yellow Vests protesters are gathering in Paris for the 22nd round of protests after the French government earlier this week delivered a report on France's Great National Debate. Addressing the debate, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Monday that the government needs to "lower taxes as soon as possible".
The mass demonstrations have continued in the centre of Paris over the last two weekends despite the fact that French authorities have banned rallies on the Champs Elysees and in its vicinity in March.
The protests, triggered by the government's plan to raise fuel taxes, have been ongoing in the country since mid-November. The authorities gave up on their fuel tax increase and have offered several other concessions, but the Yellow Vests keep gathering in cities across France.Follow Sputnik's Live Feed to Find Out More!
