Under clouds of tear gas, central Paris has become a battleground.
At the foot of the Arc de Triomphe - a national symbol of France, riot police clashed with protesters known as the Gilet Jaune, because of the yellow high-vis vest they’re wearing.
Graffiti painted on the monument calls for President Macron to resign, he says the yellow vests will triumph.
Cars barricades and even Christmas trees were set on fire, as more than 5,000 protesters took to the Champs-Elysees and surrounding streets.
What started as demonstrations over fuel taxes has become a wider protest against government policies and the cost of living.
And this is the third weekend, crowds have taken to the streets of times and cities around France.
In Paris, a hundred and forty people have been arrested, while 65 including 11 police officers have been injured.
As the capital sees some of the most violent clashes so far, the yellow vests movement appears only to be gaining momentum.
