In November 2018 a proposed fuel tax pushed a large part of population in France too far. They took to the streets across France wearing “des gilets jaunes” - vests which all motorists must by law carry in their cars in case of an emergency. This is a cry for help and of anger from a population who feels ignored, exploited and ridiculed. The official demands in French are printed on the second layer of the piece, as well as an English “translation” of the grievances we in the US could voice.
