Protesters walk alongside the Seine river during a 'Yellow Vests' protest in Paris, France, 05 January 2019. The so-called 'gilets jaunes' (yellow vests) is a grassroots protest movement with supporters from a wide span of the political spectrum, that originally started with protest across the nation in late 2018 against high fuel prices. The movement in the meantime also protests the French government's tax reforms, the increasing costs of living and some even call for the resignation of French President Emmanuel Macron.Yellow vests protest in Paris, France - 05 Jan 2019
