'Yellow Vest' activists continued their demonstrations in Paris on Saturday, despite a ban on protests along the Champs-Elysees, which was announced by French Prime Minister Edouard Phillippe after violence erupted last weekend.

Footage shows demonstrators peacefully rallying on Trocadero square, next to the Eiffel Tower. According to reports, hundreds of others gathered on the Denfert-Rochereau plaza located in southern Paris.

"Macron's regime is only held by repression and the media. The democracy is in danger, we are waiting for syndicates and the left wing to call for demonstration, to defend what remains of the social rights," said one of the activists from the Trocadero square.
