Yellow Vest protesters took to the streets of Paris on Saturday, where they were met with riot police and tear gas as the movement nears a year of weekly anti-government protests on Sunday.
Protesters can be seen throwing objects at police and being engulfed in tear gas. Other protesters can be seen flipping over a car and smashing structures on the road. Later, firefighters were deployed to extinguish flames on the streets.
The Yellow Vest protests began on November 17, 2018, and were initially sparked by a fuel price rise, but quickly spread throughout France and evolved into a general expression of dissatisfaction with the status quo.
