A major announcement will come at some point this week from French President Emmanuel Macron following the violent protests in Paris. A government spokesman made the statement today on French television, but gave no details on what Macron will announce or when. Protesters wearing yellow vests have been demonstrating across France, demanding lower taxes, higher minimum wages and better pension benefits. The protest has spread into neighboring Belgium, where police detained over 400 people yesterday when demonstrators wearing yellow vests began rioting in Brussels. Police say riot squads used water cannons and tear gas to keep a crowd of about a thousand away from the headquarters of the European Union.
