I've certainly seen some interesting stuff crop up on my video feed but it was from a YouTube channel that mixes legitimate commentary with some strong identitarian politics that I'm not a fan of - so I won't post their video.  
If the clip that you are referring to is the one where the blue police vans back up after firing teargas, I honestly couldn't tell whether it was fireworks or something else.
National Rally do seem to be keeping very quiet. Perhaps they remember the words of another Frenchman (Napoleon), when he said Never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake.



We have far right and far left in this country for some reason we are just pussy cats here and dont give it all the French dont mess about we just take it lying down maybe that is about to change .

That's true to a degree but he far left momentum/Antifa/black block types are increasingly violent and reactionary.

 

Just seen the footage that Steve was referring to with the guy who has his hands up and it looks suspect, like it's been compiled from other clips.

I am sure that there are extremists of both wings. Chuck in the students who always enjoy a good riot and away we go.

I understand that it was sparked off by a government minister and a member of the green party having a discussion on TV and one said they would like to see diesel at 2 euro a litre by Christmas, to cut emissions. 70% of cars in France are diesels and the government have encouraged this for years with diesel prices always being lower the petrol.

The only thing that I haven't heard blamed for it is immigration. France has an excellent health service which has to be paid for and which I have been using quite a lot recently. Ironically, when I have been in Hospital I am usually the only immigrant there, apart from the staff.

Sporty, I don’t need nor care what the internet will tell me, I often look at prices when I pass filling stations on my way west and am amazed how much prices vary in a few miles, so if I ask, how much do you pay for diesel? what would be your own ‘known market value’ reply.

It's just a repetition of past actions, whenever there is something they don't like. 

It's all part of their 'Gallic charm'.

Diesel prices at the moment vary between 1.55 and 1.65 in a fairly small radius, depending on which station you use, supermakets being cheaper.The price fluctuates with crude oil prices and the Euro/dollar exchange rate.

The problem has been a rise in taxes, both the so called "eco" tax and the direct taxation on diesel in particular. Diesel has always been a good bit cheaper than petrol, which is why 70% to 80% of vehicles in France are diesels. The government has said they intend to bring diesel prices up to match petrol prices to reduce emissions. They increased the tax on diesel by 7.6c a litre in 2018 and intend to raise the tax by a further 5.6c a litre from Jan 1st 2019.

As you can imagine, feelings are running at a fairly high level, but I don't think that what one person said at a road stop can be taken to show that the protest has anything to do with immigration. By and large it is still almost universally good natured and friendly at the barricades. Paris could be a different country as far as rural France is concerned. When we moved into this house, our elderly neighbour was told he would be getting English neighbours and he said "could be worse, they might have been from Paris"

 

John, I seem to remember similar protests and fuel blockades when the UK put petrol prices up a few pence. Maybe that was just part of your Anglo Saxon charm.

 Maybe it is Dave, but we draw the line at burning fish, and killing sheep.

I am quite partial to kippers and lamb chops

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong
