Hundreds of Yellow Vest protesters gathered outside France's BFM TV station for week seven of nationwide protests against the unpopular president.
The Yellow Vest protesters chanted for “Fake news journalists to come down,” and “Macron out!” at the TV station. One protester told RT France that BFM TV spreads false information about the movement, while purposefully understating the size of its demonstrations.
Saturday’s protesters were again driven away with tear gas attacks and a heavy police presence, which has become routine during demonstrations of weeks past.
On Thursday a group of Yellow Vest demonstrators attempted to storm French President Emmanuel Macron’s summer retreat, though it is unclear if he was present at the time. Macron came under fire for a $39 000 swimming pool he had installed at the coastal home.
The Yellow Vest protests began over a planned fuel-price hikes linked to climate change measures, however they soon evolved into a general protest against the Macron government. While the fuel hikes were temporarily postponed for six months, protesters continue to call for Macron’s resignation.
