Army on the way to Paris? PHOTOS & VIDEOS of French armored vehicles on the move emerge online
Photos and videos of armored vehicles allegedly approaching Paris to be deployed during Saturday’s protests have appeared on Twitter. Earlier, the French PM promised military police vehicles at the rallies.
Even though the government dropped the fuel tax hike after mass protests last week, the Yellow Vests will still march on December 8.
On Thursday evening, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe promised 8,000 additional officers in Paris and 89,000 nationwide to be deployed during the protests. He also announced that “a dozen armored vehicles” belonging to the French Gendarmerie will be rolling on the streets of the City of Lights.
