French police have fired tear gas at protesters hurling projectiles and arrested dozens of people as thousands of “yellow vest” anti-government protesters returned to the streets of Paris.
Demonstrators on Saturday shouted slogans denouncing the police, President Emmanuel Macron and his pension reforms that have triggered the longest French transport strike in decades, which has snarled public transportation for millions of commuters in the French capital for 45 days.
With sirens wailing, dozens of vans carrying riot police fanned out the route along which thousands of protesters marched.
Young people wearing masks shouted “revolution” as tear gas drifted by the Bastille, the square where the French revolution erupted in 1789.
