French Yellow Vest Anti-Government Protests Turn Violent in Paris

Gliet Jaunes protest

Today, there have been more clashes between riot police and protestors on the street, with tear gas and grenades deployed.

Leaders of the "yellow vest" movement have denounced the police for injuring protesters, but have also struggled to contain violence from their own lines. A Sputnik France correspondent who covered the rally on Saturday captured on video a vehicle with the Vigipirate logo being engulfed in flames.

As scuffles broke out in front of the National Assembly and French police responded with tear gas, paramedics huddled around the injured protester at the National Assembly gates.

Interior Ministry figures released at 2:00 p.m. local time put the turnout across France at 12,100, of whom 4,000 marched in Paris, down on the previous week's figures.

"Every day the military. protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism. These attacks are intolerable".

PARIS-A French yellow vest protester's hand was ripped apart on February 9, during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm the French National Assembly in a 13th consecutive week of unrest.

Anarchists and supporters of extremist groups on the far-Right and far-Left often join the "yellow vest" protests, along with troublemakers known as "casseurs" intent on causing as much damage as possible.

"We mustn't give up", said pensioner Serge Mairesse, from Aubervilliers, just outside Paris.

The protests have brought hundreds of thousands of people out onto the streets all over France.

French President Emmanuel Macron-the target of many demonstrators' anger-tried to claw back support from the public by addressing the movement's anger with a national political debate on economic injustice.

But a YouGov poll of 1,037 people issued on Thursday suggested that almost two out of three people in France (64 per cent) still support the movement.

"We have to win to have more social and fiscal justice in this country", said Mairesse, who was carrying a placard calling for the reimposition of a wealth tax on high earners repealed by Macron.
