Emmanuel Macron was elected last year on pledges to create more jobs and improve lives.

But for many French people, his economic reforms are a disaster.

Critics accuse him of being a president for the rich while hurting the poor. One of his reforms is causing particular outrage - fuel tax.

So-called 'yellow vest' protesters in Paris blocked roads for a second successive Saturday to tell Macron they have had enough.

Protesters say his environment-friendly tax on diesel aimed at cutting pollution has to go, and so does he.

So, will Macron change his controversial policies?
