SCRIPT
'Yellow Vests' protesters took to the streets of Lyon on Saturday despite a reported ban on demonstrations in certain areas of the city.
The protest turned violent, with police using tear gas amid clashes to push the protesters back. At least 11 people were detained, according to reports.
Since the beginning of the 'Yellow Vests' protests last November, tens of thousands have joined demonstrations across France over a variety of grievances, ranging from the rise in fuel prices to income inequality. The rallies then turned into a wider movement against French President Emmanuel Macron's policies.
