Fire on the Champs Elysees: French Police Clash With “Yellow Vest” Protesters Demanding Macron Resignation (VIDEO)

French police pushed back “yellow vest” protesters with tear gas and water cannons as the Champs Elysees burned Saturday morning.

Thousands of protesters marched to protest a gas tax hike on Saturday morning and demanded French President Emmanuel Macron resign.

Macron’s popularity has plummeted as of late. A recent opinion poll shows only 26% of French people have a favorable opinion of Macron due to the new gas tax hikes.

According to Reuters about 30,000 people are expected to protest in the French capital alone.
