France’s Yellow Vests protests have prompted others to follow in their footsteps, with similar rallies now being announced in Croatia on Saturday.

Spurred by the French protesters’ success, citizens of Belgium and the Netherlands took to the streets to protest, and now Croatia has created its own Yellow Vests movement.

Žuti prsluci Hrvatska is a newly formed Facebook group that currently has more than 10,000 members.

The Slobodna Hrvatska non-parliamentary party founded the group.

The Croatian yellow vests have scheduled their first protests for Saturday noon in the cities of Zagreb, Pula and Rijeka.

Protest organizers have called on anyone unhappy with their social status and Croatia’s political and social conditions to join them.
