Paris (AP) - In Paris, numerous "yellow vests" have gathered for new protests. Official numbers did not exist at first. TV pictures showed hundreds of people wearing safety vests traveling through Paris or gathering in Bastille Square. Signs read slogans such as "Macron Resignation" or "Stop Police Violence". It's the ninth weekend with demonstrations in a row. France's government fears riots and violence again. 80,000 security forces are deployed across the country, 5,000 in Paris alone.
