    Migrant youths from social housing projects, pretending to be Yellow Vests, attacked the police. In mainstream outlets, the origin of the attackers were not mentioned. Instead reports surfaced of “protesters attacking police officers” even though many off-duty law enforcement officers had themselves supported the protest.

    Police officers from the Wittenheim police station, who were ensuring security around the Château d’Eau in Kingersheim and who were especially managing traffic on the RD430, blocked by the protesters, were attacked in the early evening around 7:30 pm by a group of about twenty migrants wearing yellow vests who were clearly hostile.

    Even though most of them were wearing the rallying garb, the majority were also wearing balaclavas and carrying iron bars.

    The police quickly realized, after a rock or two flew in their direction, that they were not dealing with the protesters of November 17, but with young thugs who had arrived from the neighborhood of Bourtzwiller, situated not far away from there.

    Two youths, aged 15 and 22 years, were arrested by the members of the Canine Brigade and the BAC [anti-criminality brigade], and they were temporarily detained.

    Tuesday marked the fourth day of mobilisation of the Yellow Vest protest throughout France, the regional daily L’Alsace reported.

    On Saturday, four men were indicted and detained in connection with an anti-terrorist investigation. They were planning to carry out a terrorist attack, taking advantage of the absence of the police who have been called out to monitor the Yellow Vest assemblies.

    Some 27 000 people took part in actions on Monday, against 300 000 on Saturday and some 45 000 on Sunday. The demonstrations left one dead and 528 injured, including 17 seriously injured.

    The anger could continue as calls to block Paris on Saturday have been circulating on social networks, calling for an “Act 2” of the movement, which began on November 17.

    A day after the massive protests against Macron’s announced increase in fuel tax a poll was published in the Journal du Dimanche showing support for Macron plummeting.

    The Sunday poll found that four per cent of French respondents said they are “very satisfied” with Macron’s work, and 21 per cent are “mostly satisfied” down from 29 percent in October.

    According to the poll, thirty-four percent were “mostly dissatisfied” while 39 percent were “very dissatisfied”.
