Voices of the Yellow Vests: "We are just here peacefully, getting tear gassed."

“The French protesters known as the Yellow Vests, for the safety jackets that have become the emblem of their movement against austerity, income inequality and the government of President Emmanuel Macron, are hard to describe accurately on a left-right political spectrum. That has not stopped politicians and activists of all stripes from attempting to claim the movement, but it is worth taking any opportunity to actually listen to the voices of the protesters themselves.”
