French Citizens Want To Bring an End to Yellow Vest Protests

Over half of the French people want the ‘yellow vest’ protestors to finish their violent anti-government protests, which many supposing that demonstrators still marching through cities each weekend but doesn’t any longer meets the early demands of the group.

A survey conducted by reputed pollster issued late on Wednesday revealed that 56% think the movement should back out from the weekly demonstration, a rise of 11 points from a month earlier and the first time they have been a majority.
The revolt erupted last November over the high cost of diesel and living costs. The protest has been named after the high-visibility jackets French motorists need to carry in their car. The unrest rapidly turned into an extensive uprising against President Emmanuel Macron and inequality.
The revolt saw much of the worst rioting, destruction and looting. The anarchists have been blamed as well as the hard-left and extreme-right assertive with no connection to the rebel movement.
While a huge number of people are supporting the movement, two in every three thinks that those who are still protesting each weekend in Paris and in other cities are not characteristic of its early vigour.
The “yellow vests” have presented the greatest challenge to the jurisdiction of Macron, who has made costly tax concessions and last month started a two-month national debate, vowing change in policy that would focus on voter grievances.
On 14th February, President Macron met with rural mayors in the remote village of Gargilesse-Dampierre in central France. The mayors submitted their complaints, such as the shortage of doctors, a dearth of money for technology, the decline of public transport, and lack of power for local officials.
