France's Yellow Vests Mark 3 Months Amid Racist Tensions

France's Yellow Vests Mark 3 Months Amid Racist Tensions

Sunday, 17 February 2019 06:55 AM EST

French yellow vest protesters are marking three months since the kickoff of their anti-government movement, after anti-Semitic remarks by some demonstrators raised national concerns about the movement's ascendant radical fringe.

Demonstrators called for multiple rallies around Paris and some other French cities Sunday, including a Paris march expected to start at the Arc de Triomphe monument. The increasingly divided movement has held protests every Saturday since Nov. 17, but some groups are holding rallies this Sunday too, to celebrate its 3-month birthday.

An online invitation to Sunday's main Paris march says "Let's stay peaceful."

Police fired tear gas and brought in water cannons and a horse brigade to disperse yellow vest protesters Saturday in Paris. A few demonstrators hurled anti-Semitic remarks, prompting criticism from French President Emmanuel Macron and many others.
