The Yellow Vests began weekly protests across France four months ago, initially because of fuel tax rises, but the group are now calling for president Emmanuel Macron to resign
French soldiers will be permitted to 'open fire' if lives are threatened by Yellow Vest rioters this weekend, the military governor of Paris said today.
General Bruno Leray's ominous words highlight the growing law and order crisis faced by President Emmanuel Macron as he faces up to the increasingly violent social movement.
It has now been confirmed that the French Army will support some 5,000 police trying to keep order during the 19th Yellow Vest Saturday demonstration in a row in Paris at the weekend.
General Leray told Franceinfo Radio on Friday: 'If their life or that of the people they defend is threatened, they can go up to opening fire.'
There was widespread rioting across the French capital last Saturday, with banks, high-end shops, and restaurants looted and burnt out.
I heard from a socialist contact this is a good development. Anyone who disagrees with the 'common good' should be imprisoned. It's hard to form thoughts after a comment like that. We have never evolved on iota with words like that. We are an ant colony not a society of free men and women. It is tyranny pure and simple if our core rights are cast aside to the dustbin over flawed human reasoning skills. I elevate solialism to the level of Nazism and Communism. It smiles as it starts and then proceeds to the gulag. After that the only other recourse is the gas chamber.
