"Saturday's protests in France were considerably calmer than the weekend before, then the police presence has been expanded and received military support."
"For the ninth weekend in a row gathered the protest movement Yellow vests in Paris and several other French cities to protest against president Emmanuel Macrons government. The French interior ministry estimates that around 40 000 demonstrators participated over the country."
"After last weekend's chaotic scenes, as a large number of shops looted and buildings were set on fire on the avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the government received massive criticism. Before the weekend promised Macron zero tolerance towards violence, and excommunicated for the first time, the protests in parts of Paris."
"Around 6 000 police officers and military personnel with armored vehicles and water cannons utkommenderades in the capital on Saturday. Some 70 people were arrested in the capital, the vast majority for defying protestförbudet. Clashes occurred in Paris and several cities, but at a considerably smaller scale compared with the past."
"– the Right action has been taken and here we see the result, says interior minister Christophe Castaner in a tv interview."
"the Soldiers from the special antiterrorstyrka who supported the French police in recent years were sent out to guard public buildings in order to free up police resources to the protests, which also brought criticism against the government."
