Paris protest lock­down

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

AN­TIC­I­PAT­ING a fourth straight week­end of vi­o­lent protest, France has mo­bilised ar­moured ve­hi­cles and thou­sands of po­lice, cor­doned off Paris boule­vards and plans to shut down the Eif­fel Tower and Lou­vre.

The heavy se­cu­rity will put cen­tral Paris in a vir­tual lock­down against what the in­te­rior min­is­ter called “rad­i­calised and re­bel­lious peo­ple,” who au­thor­i­ties be­lieve will join mem­bers of the “yel­low vest” move­ment that has been hold­ing anti-gov­ern­ment demon­stra­tions. Na­tion­wide, about 89,000 po­lice will fan out in the streets.
