Yellow Vest Protests Week 19

How the French remain paitent with this I do not know, but the latest protests show that not only are the YellowVests dwindling, there are among them those who are happy to resort to random violence. Parts of Central Paris are now banned to protesters
A tough response is clearly needed, but how requires careful thought and planning. Some are calling for a military response and I understand the desire for that, but that will be what the most hardcore violent protesters want. I hope President Macron will work out the right way forward that will dissuade these violent protests
