Pro­test­ers take aim at me­dia as move­ment slows

San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Nation | World -

PARIS — Yel­low vest pro­test­ers marched on the head­quar­ters of lead­ing French broad­cast­ers Satur­day, as small groups turned out in Paris and around France de­spite wan­ing mo­men­tum for their move­ment.

Hun­dreds of demon­stra­tors — some chant­ing “Jour­nal­ists! Col­lab­o­ra­tionists!” — gath­ered at the cen­tral of­fices of tele­vi­sion net­work BFM and state-run France Tele­vi­sions. Some pro­test­ers hurled stones and other ob­jects dur­ing scat­tered skir­mishes with riot po­lice fir­ing tear gas.

Both po­lice and pro­test­ers ap­peared to be out in much smaller num­bers than pre­vi­ous week­ends.
