Visiting Paris yesterday: Not really a good idea

306

A huge clean-up operation is currently underway in Paris and started in the early hours Sunday morning after French “yellow vest” demonstrators clashed with riot police in the latest round of protests against French President Emmanuel Macron. Today all eyes are on the president in regards to fuel surcharges that caused the yellow vest movement.

Almost 1,000 people had been taken into custody in France yesterday. It was recommended to tourists in the French capital to take a trip to Versailles or the countryside to avoid being caught up in the yellow vest movement protests.
