On Sunday 28 January 2019, the new Foulards Rouges social movement organised a march in Paris to protest against the rise of violence and abuse from the Gilets Jaunes.

According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, more than 10.000 people took part to demand the end of the roadblocks, the fights with police forces and the degradation of public monuments.

It is worth noting that there is already an internal division among the Foulards Rouges members. Indeed, some of them decide to back President Emmanuel Macron while others consider the movement apolitical.
