Thousands of people took to the streets in Paris Sunday to denounce ongoing "yellow vest" demonstrations.
The counterprotest group has named itself the "red scarves." Its leader said more than 10,000 people participated in the peaceful protests.
In joint manifesto with other counterprotest groups, the red scarves said they reject the yellow vests and their threats and verbal abuse. Many people held up signs that said "stop the violence."
