* Yellow Vest protesters erected the guillotine bearing the slogan En Marche! in a threat to Emmanuel Macron
* The move came after another weekend of rioting swept France, leaving dozens hurt and hundreds in custody
* Macron, who has already made ‘humiliating’ concessions, is expected to go further in a TV address tonight
Yellow Vest protesters in Paris erected a guillotine bearing the name of Emmanuel Macron’s political party in a direct threat to the under-fire French President. The move came as the country’s finance minister warned the violent protests sweeping the country are a ‘catastrophe’ for the nation’s economy.
The demonstrators torched cars, vandalised and looted shops and restaurants, and hurled stones in a fourth weekend of protests in Paris. Riot police fought back with tear gas, water cannon and baton charges, leaving 71 people injured in the French capital.
The shocking guillotine footage, which was filmed in an unknown location in France, emerged as Macron prepared to meet trade unionists and rival politicians before addressing the country at 8pm tonight.
