PARIS (AP) — Thousands of French yellow vest protesters marched through Paris on Saturday for a ninth straight weekend as others took to the streets in the central city of Bourges to denounce President Emmanuel Macron’s economic policies amid high security measures as authorities feared more violence.

Protesters walked through central Paris from the Finance Ministry in the east to the surroundings of the Arc de Triomphe in the west. Some scuffles broke out between police and protesters near the monument. Security forces used tear gas to push back some protesters who were throwing rocks and other objects at them.

Police established a car ban on the nearby Champs-Elysees avenue.

Paris police say 40 people were arrested Saturday before and during the protests, primarily for carrying potential weapons.

1. I wonder if the yellow jackets are disgruntled Le Pen supporters on Putins payroll?

4. On twitter I have noticed accounts that support qanon

along with the yellow vest movements. That sure smells like Vlad to me. I anticipate the vests will come here after messing up the U.K. (just starting there) even further than it already is. It will go hand in hand with Farage’s army (as he calls it) planning demonstrations.

Hopefully our intelligence folks are on it.

5. Fascist scum

This is Putin trying to help Le Pen. Don't fall for it. They're protesting against public housing for minorities.
