More violence in Paris as 'yellow vests' keep marching

Yellow vests protesters

Witnesses told the French AFP news agency that the man's hand had been torn apart when flash-ball grenade exploded.

Police said 21 demonstrators had been arrested as scuffles broke out between protesters and police near the Champs-Elysees Avenue and the National Assembly.

An injured policeman in riot gear is given help during a demonstration by the yellow vests in Paris on February 9, 2019.

The Yellow Vest protests, which started late a year ago, began as a movement against Emmanuel Macron's proposed fuel taxes.

According to an eyewitness, the victim was injured after the explosion of stun grenades thrown by police at the time when the demonstrators tried to overcome the fence at the entrance to the National Assembly.

Police said the injured protester lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching the parliament's exterior.

The protest in the French capital has passed the National Assembly and will end up near the Eiffel Tower.

"Emmanuel Macron did not get the support of all the French people".

"It goes back to the fact that there are some profits but they're always to the same people".

On Feb. 5, France passed an "anti-casseurs" (anti-hooligan) law banning protesters from hiding their faces, giving police greater powers to extract potential troublemakers from demonstrations, and granting local authorities the right to ban individual protesters.

"And you cannot just say "let's go on with austerity because it's the only thing we can do".

Thousands of protesters turned out Saturday in the French Mediterranean ports of Marseille and Montpellier and also in Bordeaux and Toulouse in the southwest - strongholds of the movements - as well as several cities in the north and west of France.

Interior ministry figures put the turnout across France at 51,400, of whom 4,000 marched in Paris, slightly down on the previous week's figures.

She warned Yellow Vests-like movements around Europe will continue to pop up in protest of European Union austerity measures as a solution to temporary economic crises.

French prosecutors are meanwhile investigating a series of attacks on homes belonging to politicians in Macron's Republic on the Move party, ranging from vandalism to arson.
