©YOAN VALAT/EPA/MAXPPP - epa07338602 French anti-riot police hold their LDB-40 flashball (non-lethal rubber bullet guns) as clashes erupt at the Republic square with protesters from the 'Gilets Jaunes' (Yellow Vests) movement during the 'Act XII' demonstration (the 12th consecutive national protest on a Saturday) dedicated to the victims of the movement in Paris, France, 02 February 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.
