45th Demonstration of Yellow Vests in Paris: One Hundred Arrests
45th Demonstration of Yellow Vests in Paris: One Hundred Arrests. In Paris today three demonstrations roam the city. That of the yellow vests is turbulent. The police were already using tear gas.
In the French capital of Paris, the police have already picked up more than a hundred yellow jackets. 104 have only been verbalised and 1250 checked, says the newspaper, Le Parisien.
Most arrests took place during the demonstrations’ attempts to reach the famous Champs-Elysées avenue. That is a prohibited area for the demonstrators. The police had to use tear gas several times.
By the way, most demonstrators do not wear the symbolic yellow vest – making them difficult to identify – but claim to be part of the social movement born in November 2018.
Incidentally, not only the yellow jackets are arguing in Paris today. There is also a trade union campaign against government pension plans and a climate rally.
At the beginning of the afternoon, dozens of jackets started to join the climate demonstration that will start at the Jardin du Luxembourg.
