(Gateway Pundit) – Paris is burning. Store windows on the Champs-Élysées were smashed on Saturday as the “Yellow Vests” protested for the 18th weekend.
Thousands of protesters began marching in November of last year to protest a gas tax hike and demanded French President Emmanuel Macron resign.
The French police have used water cannons, tear gas and flash bombs to get the protests under control, but the Yellow Vest protesters refuse to back down, risking their lives to fight against Globalism.

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.
President Trump blasted the Paris Accord on Saturday.
“How is the Paris Environmental Accord working out for France? After 18 weeks of rioting by the Yellow Vest Protesters, I guess not so well! In the meantime, the United States has gone to the top of all lists on the Environment,” Trump said in a tweet Saturday afternoon.
