    Some 84 000 demonstrators took part in Act X of the Yellow Vests according to the Ministry of the Interior. On Saturday, January 19, the numbers were identical to that of last week, according to French daily Le Monde.

    However, these figures of the authorities have again been challenged by the Yellow Vests which have advanced their own estimates via Facebook pages. In terms of security, 80 000 police and gendarmes were deployed by the government.

    In Paris, according to the ministry, they were 7 000 marchers. The police, however, used tear gas and water cannons, once the procession disbanded. Some acts of vandalism were registered.

    Toulouse had a record mobilisation with 10 000 street protesters and few incidents. Clashes erupted in cities such as Lyon, Bordeaux, Rennes or Angers.

    The Yellow Vests were invited to bring a “flower or candle” by the organisers, to pay tribute to those killed or wounded “for [their] cause” since the beginning of the movement in November. In total, counting protesters and members of the security forces, ten people have died, and 2 000 have been injured.
