法国继续抗议燃油价格上涨

法国的抗议者们预计周二继续举行示威活动,反对由于政府环境政策带来的燃油价格上涨。

周一约有2万人参加示威,阻碍油库、道路和加油站的交通。

上周六有近30万人参加抗议活动。组织者们呼吁,如果法国总统马克龙的政府不同意取消燃油税,就将在11月24号再次举行大规模抗议。这项税收将在未来几年推升燃油价格。

这些抗议活动还反映出民众对法国经济以及人们认为家庭消费能力下降的普遍不满。一些评论人士称马克龙为“富人的总统”。

但马克龙政府没有让步。法国总理菲利普周日表示,他听到了抗议者愤怒的呼声,但政策不会改变。

警方星期一清除了部分抗议现场。

示威活动中有一人被一名恐慌的司机撞死,有500多人受伤。

French Protests Target Fuel Price Hikes

Protesters in France are expected to continue demonstrations Tuesday against a hike in fuel prices linked to government environmental policies.

About 20,000 people turned out Monday to block oil depots, roads and gas stations.

Nearly 300,000 protested on Saturday, and organizers are again calling for mass demonstrations November 24 if President Emmanuel Macron's government does not agree to remove the taxes that are due to push fuel prices even higher in coming years.

The protests also reflect broader dissatisfaction with the French economy and perceptions that households have less spending power. Some critics have labeled Macron as "president of the rich."

But his government is not backing down. Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said Sunday that while he hears protesters' anger, the policies will not change.

Police cleared some of the protests sites Monday.

One person has been killed in the demonstrations after being hit by a panicked driver. More than 500 people have been injured.
