Hundreds Inspired by Yellow Vest Movement Rally in London

LONDON (AP) — Hundreds of protesters inspired by France's yellow vest movement are rallying in Britain, drawing attention to government austerity programs that have hit the poor hard.

Wearing yellow vests with slogans such as "Britain is Broken" written on the back, the demonstrators marched in London to demand that politicians pay attention to their plight rather than being endlessly diverted by the spectacle surrounding Britain's departure from the European Union.

They also want to show solidarity with French protesters who have staged weeks of nationwide anti-austerity protests.

Some French protesters also joined the London march on Saturday.

Erick Simon, 57, who traveled from the Normandy in France to the London rally, says "all European countries must join up in this battle against austerity."
