France braced for ‘day of rage’ protests

Senior Political Correspondent

France is bracing itself for what’s being called a “day of rage” tomorrow. Already dozens of tax offices across the country have been attacked and mass protests are planned in Paris and other cities.

The anti-government demonstrations are being led by the so-called “yellow vest” movement, named after the safety jackets carried by motorists in France, fuelled by anger over President Macron’s tax reforms.
