Protesters from the ‘yellow vest‘ movement are on the streets of France for a 21st weekend running, with 1000’s gathered for a march across Paris.
Paris police have fine-tuned their strategy of being more mobile and proactive to counter eventual violence since the 1st Saturday of protests on 17 November.
The Champs-Elysees is off-limits to protesters after it was hit by major deadly rioting last month.
Hundreds gathered in Rouen, in Normandy, a past flashpoint, and hundreds more in eastern Paris at the Place de la Republique, the start of a march to the business district on the capital’s western edge.
The ‘yellow vest‘ movement, demanding social and economic justice, is still attracting crowds across France, and still remains a challenge to the young elitist President Emmanuel Macron.
