Saturday, November 16, 2019, 8:05 PM
Paris police fired tear-gas to push back yellow-vest-protesters trying to revive their movement on the first-anniversary of the sometimes-violent uprising against President Emmanuel Macron and policies seen as favoring the rich. Police deployed in force around Paris and detained 24 people around the capital by mid-morning. Macron backed down on the fuel tax and offered 10 billion-euros ($11-billion) in measures to address protesters' concerns.
