In Toulouse, tension was high between security forces and protestors, which lead to the former’s use of tear gas on the latter.

Protests were also reported in various other cities.

Yellow Vest protests last November in response to rising fuel costs, which later turned into deadly anti-government riots.

The protests have left 11 dead, more than 4,245 injured and over 12,000 people arrested by security forces.

After the Notre Dame Cathedral, a symbol of Paris, suffered significant damage due to fire in April, police banned protests around the cathedral.
