Paris Experienced Worst Riots in Decade : Macron Calls for Talks

The president of Paris Emmanuel Macron ordered his ministry to hold talks on Sunday with the Protesters who were protesting against increased taxes and living costs in Paris as their anti-government demonstrations became violent.
The Arc de Triomphe was among hundreds of buildings attacked and more than 100 people injured by anti-government and Macron visited the the place and after that he arranged an emergency meeting to find a solution.
The meeting discussed how to adapt security forces and tactics to contain future protests, a presidential source told Reuters .
12 people were arrested and 133 people were injured, including 23 police officers according to the police report. Charred cars, broken glass and graffiti from the famed Champs-Elysees Avenue were all over the place.
“Some officers described encountering “unprecedented” violence, including protesters using hammers, gardening tools, bolts, aerosol cans as well as rocks in physical confrontations,” said Paris police Michel Delpuech.
The “yellow vest” rebellion erupted with protesters blocking roads across France and impeding access to some shopping malls, fuel depots and airports on November 17. Violent groups from the far right and far left as well as youths from the suburbs infiltrated Saturday’s protests, the authorities said.
The president was open to dialogue, he said, but would not reverse policy reforms. “We won’t change course. We are certain of that,” he told Europe 1 radio.
“The violence is increasing at an exponential rate,” saying this Claude added “The state is losing control, it is scary. They cannot let this happen. Maybe the army should intervene.”
Macron said he welcomed the views of protesters but vowed that those who participated in wreaking havoc would be held responsible for their behavior.
