Disorders began at the Triumphal arch, the police applied tear gas and rubber bullets. Protesters began to throw at police officers bottles and stones. The situation in France is monitored by the observer of Business FM Andrey Zhvirblis: "Very indicative meeting in the city of Burzh in the Central France turned out. It is rather the town, 60 thousand inhabitants, unclear for what reasons it was chosen — probably, it is such symbol of deep France. There the prefecture banned a demonstration, there gathered to many people, Burzh along with Paris very famous too. Protesters at first gathered in Paris near the Ministry of Economics and finance, the situation was even festive there. After that they went a procession towards the Champs Elysée, actually through all city, rounded Bastille Square which was completely surrounded by police, and as a result through an hour and a half reached the Champs Elysée, the Triumphal arch, absolutely freely there passed them. Nearby streets were blocked by police because it is approaches to the Élysée Palace, last Saturdays it becomes already traditionally. The situation was initially absolutely quiet, peace. As well as all last Saturdays, everything begins peacefully and in the atmosphere of a holiday. They went around the Triumphal arch, everything was quiet, but at some point the police began to force out them from the Triumphal arch with use of tear gas. Representatives of police say that nothing of that kind terrible occurs. All slogans first of all against the president, with the requirement to resign. It increased, most likely, he too late understood that the protest is a thing serious and all his answers of the French did not satisfy though it has to as now it became known, on Monday to address the nation with a certain open letter and the offer of a national discussion. But anyway situation very strange: all say that Macron is too far from the people, is torn off from these realities. Literally the day before late at night he received bakers, and it is necessary to tell that bakers and bakers in France are symbolical, very dear profession, a symbol of the person of work who feeds all with bread, and, accepting them, he delivered a speech where he told in an intense situation that very many of our fellow citizens want to receive everything, without making any efforts. It, of course, caused additional splash in indignation, and policy it already used, the opposition says that the president just is engaged in provocations on the eve of mass protests".
