Scuffles broke out between police and demonstrators at the 31st consecutive week of Yellow Vests protests in Paris on Saturday.

Holding signs and chanting, protesters began their Saturday march in the French capital to protest against government economic policies. Footage shows a police officer chasing a demonstrator with a baton, and protesters kicking and pushing down fences that were cordoning the march.

Since its beginning in November, tens of thousands have marched every Saturday through the streets of France over a variety of grievances, ranging from taxes on fuel to income inequality.

According to official numbers over 10,000 took to the streets last weekend across the country.
