'Yellow vests' march in Paris as troops join police to prevent trouble

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

French "yellow vest" demonstrators began their 19th consecutive weekend of protests against President Emmanuel Macron's government on Saturday (March 23) as military units were deployed to help police clamp down on any trouble.

Protesters were banned from gathering on the Champs Elysees in Paris after shops and businesses on the avenue were looted and wrecked last weekend, leading the government to call in "Operation Sentinelle" army units for this weekend.

Some demonstrators gathered near the Eiffel Tower, while others began marching along a new route taking them from Denfert Rochereau in southern Paris with the aim of finishing by Barbes, near the Sacre Coeur church in northern Paris.

Fifty-one people had been arrested as of early afternoon, Paris police said.

Chief of police Didier Lallement said protesters who breach the prohibited perimeters around Paris will be subjected to a 135 euro fine.

Named after the high-visibility vests French drivers have to keep in their cars and worn by protesters, the demonstrations began in November after public anger against fuel tax rises.

The movement has morphed into a broader backlash against Macron's government, despite it scrapping the fuel taxes, and it has often been marred by violent clashes and looting.
