The "yellow vests" are meeting this Saturday, April 20 in Paris and other cities in France for the act 23 of their mobilization, they announced as a new "ultimatum" to Emmanuel Macron.
At least 2,000 "yellow vests" were gathered this Saturday before the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Bercy, for the twenty-third act of their mobilization. The atmosphere was pretty good. On the signs and in their remarks, some alluded to Notre-Dame de Paris, ravaged by a fire on Monday and for which the donations flocked. "Macron our drama of France" could be read on a cardboard. After two hours of waiting under a radiant sky, the procession rushed towards the Place de la Bastille.

Three more parades were planned. One had to leave the basilica of Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis) to join the university of Jussieu, in the center of the capital.
This new day of mobilization concludes a week during which the President of the Republic was to present a series of measures intended to meet the expectations expressed during the great national debate. His speech was rejected because of the fire of the cathedral of Paris, but some ads leaked. In particular, the implementation of referendums of citizens' initiative at the local level.
But for Jean-Baptiste Redde, met before Bercy, it's far from enough.

Some 60,000 police officers were mobilized throughout France, including more than 5,000 in Paris. French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said the day before fear the arrival of violent elements, especially in the capital. " According to the information we have at the moment, " he explained at a press conference. The riders will be at the rendezvous tomorrow, in some cities of France, but especially in Paris. "
The "yellow vests" announced for three weeks an exceptional mobilization and a second " ultimatum " to Emmanuel Macron. The precedent was held on March 16, in the wake of the closing of the big debate. On social networks, the tone adopted was this time vindictive, even threatening. On Facebook, the most popular event that federated nearly 6,000 participants called to go to Paris in a " non-peaceful " way.
