Yellow Jacket protesters storm violently in Paris

Protests in Paris erupted into violence on Saturday as hundreds of rioters took to the streets amidst heavy police presence and left a cloud of tears to drive back the protesters.

The video uploaded on Twitter showed rioters dressed in black slapping a parked car and later setting it on fire. Another video showed an elderly man intervening to prevent a rioter from robbing a car, only to be pushed to the ground by the rioter.

According to a tweet by the Paris police, by 1 pm Paris time, the police made more than 150 arrests, mainly on concealed weapons charges, including pictures of knives, sticks and bullets seized from protesters.

Black anarchists who roamed through the city’s streets joined hundreds of peaceful protesters, demanding social justice and increasing environmental protection.

Jean-Marie Bigard, a comedian and self-appointed presidential candidate for the Giants or the Yellow Jackets, was greeted by members of the Yellow Jackets on March one in Paris, and called an “ally”, Because they had distanced themselves from one. The leaders referred to the police as “Nazi.” According to French news reports, Bigard had to take refuge in a cafe after protesters threatened him.

The national day of the movement was called by the movement after a movement during the coronovirus lockdown. Several hundred protesters gathered near the two squares in Paris, where stores were piled with plywood in anticipation of authorized processions. Police halted the group’s protests two years ago when rioting turned violent against French President Emmanuel Macron’s government.

In 2018, the Yellow Jacket movement began among workers working in traffic circles to protest the increase in fuel taxes. He also wore a yellow vest obliging his drivers to keep it in their vehicle in case of emergency. The movement soon turned into an environmental and social justice crusade, with protesters demanding the macron government’s wealthy and ultimately higher taxes.
