SCRIPT
The 'Yellow Vests' took to the streets for the second consecutive day in Paris on Sunday, as they marked the first anniversary of the movement.
Chaotic scenes could be seen in central Paris, with tear gas engulfing the Place de le Republique as protesters set makeshift barricades ablaze. Many were reportedly arrested by the security forces.
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.
