Police used water cannon and tear gas against 'Yellow Vests' protesters as thousands gathered for the 44th week of demonstrations in Nantes on Saturday.
Since the beginning of the 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.
