Paris police resorted to extreme crowd-control measures on Saturday as tens of thousands of “Yellow Vest” protesters descended on the French capital for a fourth weekend of chaos which began over fuel taxes and quickly morphed into general outrage at the Macron government.

Tear gas was fired at the protesters who were shouting “Macron, resign” near Champs-Elysees avenue. At least 575 were arrested in Paris of the more than 700 demonstrators arrested countrywide, according to Secretary of State to Interior Minister Laurent Nunez, as cited by French media.

Dozens of people were arrested carrying “masks, hammers, slingshots and rocks,” according to AFP.

At least 31,000 protesters came out for Saturday’s “Act IV” event – coordinated through social media.

“The movement has given birth to a monster,” said Interior Minister Christophe Canaster of the Yellow Vests – which the Macron administration deployed 89,000 police and gendarmes to try and contain. 8,000 police forces were active in Paris alone.

“These past three weeks have produced a monster that its creators no longer control,” Canaster said Friday, saying that the administration would have “zero tolerance” to those trying sow chaos.

    Social Media allows a protest against the New World Order.

    Euro leaders want their countries trashed so they can transition to an Islamic caliphate. Muslims will be fighting citizens eventually.
