Violent Weekend Protest in Paris Makes Eiffel Tower , Louvre to Be Closed

Scores of shops on the Champs-Elysees, including The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre museum are planning to close as authorities alerted about current violence in this weekend during the protests which have generated into the biggest crisis of the presidency of Emmanuel Macron.

The government struggling to conceal another burned cars and current battles in street with police by the infuriated protesters of a Yellow vest over escalating costs of living which is generated for high tax rates.

The official of interior ministry told AFP that administrations were refreshing for “ significant violence”, based on the demonstrations that protesters from far left and far right are scheming to coincide on the capital.

Officials worry they could be connected by hooligans set on looting and rioting, as is extensively thought to have been the case last weekend.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe told 8,000 police would be sited in Paris alongside a dozen armour-plated vehicles for crowd controls as part of “rare ” measures to restrain the risk of violence.

He also repeated his urge for being calm, saying in a live interview in TV that the government was ready to review “any measure which would allow us to boost spending power”.

All over the country, some 89,0000 police will be in a rally, up from 65,000 in the last weekend, while the country was plunged by daylong scenes of urban disruption in Paris.

But so far the “yellow vest” movement presents no marks of losing mist, despite the rollback of the government of planned petrol tax escalations for January, one of the opponent’s core demands.
