“How would a classic Parisian Saturday look like during the yellow vests crisis? Closed tube stations, blocked streets and a procession of demonstrators who often leave behind damage and injured.

Emmanuèle discusses the concept of riots and strikes in the context of a growing worldwide social discontent.
