Paris descends into chaos (watch)



Posted by Ed 6 mths ago
Police have deployed tear gas and water cannons against firecracker-hurling Yellow Vest protesters in Paris. Some 200 arrests have been made and 92 people injured amid the mayhem, triggered by fuel price hikes and high taxes.

December 1 rallies are being held with the slogan “on the way to Macron’s resignation.” As the unrest gained momentum, the area close to the iconic Champs-Elysees avenue has been covered by thick smoke.

I have never seen the kind of wanton destruction that surrounded me on some of the smartest streets of Paris on Saturday – such random, hysterical hatred, directed not just towards the riot police but at shrines to the French republic itself such as the Arc de Triomphe. The 12-hour battle went beyond violent protest, beyond rioting, to the point of insurrection, even civil war.
