Reading Time: < 1 minute


France is going to see fresh anti-government protests by yellow vest protesters. The central French city of Bourges is shuttering shops as the protesters are seeking a new stage for its weekly protests amid heavy police presence in Paris. Online groups mounted calls for the protest in Bourges. The French government has deployed 80,000 security forces in Paris to prevent a repeat of last week’s violence. The government has vowed tough retaliation against violence. Initials the protests were sparked by French President’s Macron’s decision to raise fuel prices on January 1. Macron abandoned the proposal after protests and made concessions. The protesters are not satisfied and are now demanding deeper changes to France’s economy and politics.

Macron has called for a national debate beginning next week for voters to state their demands.
