Here’s what’s happening with the trucker-led protests in Canada and a copycat protest in Paris.

The Canadian protest has inspired similar protests in New Zealand, Australia and now France. Thousands of cars, camper vans and trucks made their way to Paris from around the country over the past few days, to protest not only the government’s vaccine pass but also other sources of anger, like rising gas or energy prices. The French government is watching the convoy protests closely. President Emmanuel Macron is keen to avoid a repeat of the Yellow Vest protests that roiled France in 2018 and 2019, sometimes violently.
