Paris - Sana
The protesters of the Zero Jackets movement continued their demonstrations in a number of French cities today to denounce President Emmanuel Macron's social and economic policies despite attempts by the French police to suppress them with tear gas.
"French police repeatedly used tear gas and water cannons today to disperse about 1,000 demonstrators from the zero-jackets movement in the southern French city of Toulouse," Agence France-Presse said.
In Paris, demonstrators from the Zero Jackets movement joined a march to demand a response to climate change.
The demonstrations come two days after the French government unveiled a draft budget for 2020, which notes the reduction of taxes on the French by more than nine billion euros in an attempt by the French president to calm the protests.
Last week, French police arrested 137 protesters and fined 224 other Zero Jackets protesters for having been banned from gathering.
Macron's domestic and foreign policies have received more opposition and opposition both politically and popularly in France, where protests have continued since the Zero Jackets movement since November last year to demand his resignation against the backdrop of his failed economic policies, which led to a dramatic rise in the cost of living and increased unemployment among the French.
