In Paris there will be new protests

In Paris there will be new protests”

On Saturday, 9 February, hundreds of Yellow Vests protesters took to the streets of Paris in the 13th week of protests to sweep across France.

Paris police said the man had lost four fingers.

The movement of the "yellow jackets" holds protest rally for the 13th time, as usual, at the end of the week.

Police said that about 10 demonstrators have been arrested so far as scuffles broke out between protesters and police near the Champs-Elysees avenue and the National Assembly.

One witness who filmed the incident, 21-year-old Cyprien Royer, said it had been caused by a flash-ball grenade fired by police to disperse the crowd. It said the meeting had come after "repeated accusations, unfounded attacks, and outlandish claims" by Rome.

A Sentinelle security operation vehicle is burning in front of the Eiffel Tower during a demonstration as the "Yellow Vests" protesters take to the streets for the 13th consecutive Saturday.

On Feb. 5, France passed an "anti-casseurs" (anti-hooligan) law banning protesters from hiding their faces, giving police greater powers to extract potential troublemakers from demonstrations, and granting local authorities the right to ban individual protesters.

Earlier Saturday, activists in Latvia staged a picket in front of the French embassy in Riga, the capital of the small Baltic EU country, to support the yellow vest movement and urge Latvians to demand higher living standards.

"I'm sorry that Macron lived this as a bit lese-majeste", Di Maio said.

Since Nov. 17, thousands of protesters wearing bright yellow vests - dubbed the Yellow Vests - have gathered in major French cities, including Paris, to protest President Emmanuel Macron's controversial fuel tax hikes and deteriorating economic situation.

Thousands of protesters also turned out in the French cities of Marseille and Montpellier as well as Bordeaux and Toulouse and in several cities in France's north and west.
