According to the newspaper Le Parisien, the prefecture of Paris has banned two demonstrations, but several others have been approved, in particular, marches from the Exchange Square and from Place Vagram.

When the convoy began moving along the Avenue de la Vagram, clashes broke out between demonstrators and security forces. During the arrests, the police used tear gas grenades. In turn, according to media reports, the protesters set fire to garbage cans and overturned the city’s decoration.

In addition, police searched and searched passers-by in the Champs-Elysees and their surrounding streets, where demonstrations were banned after the pogroms of “yellow vests” in late 2018.

At the moment in the French capital closed many subway stations and lines of high-speed suburban trains RER.
