Paris Police Break Out Tear Gas To Thwart 'Yellow Vest' Demonstrators


For the 23rd consecutive weekend, "yellow vest" protesters marched in central Paris on Saturday. According to CNN, riot police unleashed tear gas at the protesters. The protesters are rallying against economic injustice. Their demonstrations have frequently become violent. The government had warned that police would use "all means necessary" to stop demonstrations from getting out of control. French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said more than 60,000 police were deployed across France to deal with the protests.
