Significant damage to public and private property was filmed in central Paris on Saturday, after Yellow Vest protesters returned to the French capital on the first anniversary of the movement.
Footage shows workers already deployed on the streets, sweeping shattered glass and piling burnt public benches and other furniture. The glass facades of a hotel, a bank, and a shopping mall were also shattered.
The Yellow Vest protests began on November 17, 2018, and were initially sparked by a fuel tax rise, but quickly spread throughout France and evolved into a general expression of dissatisfaction with the status quo.
