CWN Editor's Note: The “yellow vest” movement originally protested fuel tax increases but has grown into a more amorphous mass movement whose members have burned down a public building in Puy-en-Velay and have threatened to kill government employees. The president of the Bishops’ Conference of France said that the crisis manifests a “lack of listening and dialogue in our country”; he condemned the violence and called for prayer and dialogue.
