AFP:Macron govt hopes 'yellow vest' protests running out of steam16 December 2018 | 20:43 | FOCUS News Agency
Around 66,000 protesters turned out again on Saturday for a fifth round of anti-government demonstrations, which sprung up over fuel tax hikes last month.
The figure was about half the number of the previous weekend, suggesting "the end of a cycle of mobilisation", according to Jerome Saint-Marie of pollsters Pollingvox.
"One stage is behind us, certainly, and I think that that is in everybody's interest, including the yellow vests," Education Minister Michel Blanquer said.
