Hun­dreds in­spired by yel­low vest move­ment rally in Lon­don

The Arizona Republic - - Usa Today -

Hun­dreds of pro­test­ers in­spired by France’s yel­low vest move­ment ral­lied Satur­day in Bri­tain, draw­ing at­ten­tion to gov­ern­ment aus­ter­ity pro­grams that have hit the poor hard.

Wear­ing yel­low vests with slo­gans such as “Bri­tain is Bro­ken” writ­ten on the back, the demon­stra­tors marched in Lon­don to de­mand that politi­cians pay at­ten­tion to their plight rather than be­ing end­lessly di­verted by the spec­ta­cle sur­round­ing Bri­tain’s de­par­ture from the Euro­pean Union.

They also wanted to show sol­i­dar­ity with pro­test­ers who re­turned to the streets of Paris again Satur­day.
