Following the recruitment of "yellow vests," Edward Phillip said Sunday he had heard "anger" and "suffering" but wanted to keep a "hat" while blocks and dams continued in some areas and may persist Monday.

The Prime Minister once again expressed Emanuel Makron's commitment to reducing taxes and paying even better work.

In some places, "yellow vests" indicated that they would continue the movement Monday, such as in the High (Lower) or Morbihan. In Le Mans, a union with truck drivers and farmers to deny access to A28 is announced.

On Saturday, protesters blocked highways, squares, hypermarkets or organized activities for free. "Yellow vests" also went to Eliza, where the police used tear gas.

On the side of the union, CFDT boss Lauren Berger called Emmanuel Macaron "very soon to unite" unions, employers and non-profit organizations "to build a social alliance of ecological conversion."
