French President Emmanuel Macron is set  to address his nation on Tuesday regarding the persistent violent protests over fuel taxes.

 Paris saw clashes between police and demonstrators Saturday on the Champs-Elysees where barricades were set on fire, luxury shop windows smashed, and traffic lights uprooted.

Some 30 people were injured and 101 arrested, police said.

 The government blamed much of the violence on a small minority of “ultra-right” activists who shadowed the 8,000 demonstrators who were wearing the yellow, high-visibility vests that symbolise their week-long protests.

 Bruno Le Maire, the economy minister, acknowledged Sunday that “the current crisis goes far beyond just a question of fuel”, adding that it was important that “work be better paid” to improve living standards.

 “It is time to listen to the French,” he said on BFM television, suggesting that Macron would call for “grassroot debates” throughout the country on government policies.
