Gilets jaunes prepare for protest before New Year

rfi English, Dec 28

A seventh wave of gilets jaunes demonstrations is expected in cities throughout France on Saturday and New Year's Eve, according to social media sites networking the rallies against the government.

Protesters say they will take to the streets again in Paris, Lyon, Nantes, Toulouse and Bordeaux because President Emmanuel Macron has failed to adress their demands.

"The gilets jaunes are still very mobilised," said Laetitia Dewalle, one of the activists in the Val-d'Oise.

She said the protests would continue despite the government's decision not to increase the cost of fuel. The Facebook page "Gilets Jaunes Toulouse" called on sympathisers to gather in the city centre. Other activists plan to organise road blocks.
