Over 300,000 people are believed to have taken part in protests called for by major trade unions on March 19. Three days before the mobilization, the Yellow Vests marked the 18th consecutive week of their protest

Around 300,000 people took part in rallies and marches in 200 cities across the France. Around the same time, the French parliament passed an anti-hooliganism law that bars protesters from hiding their faces and gives local authorities the power to ban individual protesters

Belying claims by critics that the movement was weakening, 50,000 protesters took to the streets of France over the weekend. Their demands included constitutional reform to introduce referendums on various issues
