Yellow Vest demonstrators used a forklift to breakdown the doors of a government compound on Saturday. A government spokesperson said he and his team had to escape through a back door and take refuge in a nearby hotel when protesters broke through the front doors.

This weekend marked the 8th consecutive Saturday of demonstrations. The first Yellow Vest demonstration of 2019. The protests saw a lull during the holidays, but Saturday’s numbers were up and demonstrators were more energized.

The yellow vest protests were sparked by a fuel tax in November has escalated into widespread anger over Macron government’s policies and fury over the rising costs of living.

More than 50,000 people protested across France on Saturday.
