Thousands of red scarf clad protesters marched through the streets of Paris on Sunday (January 27) to protest the violent clashes seen during the "yellow vest" protests of the last 11 weeks.
According to Paris police prefecture 10,500 protesters came out to decry the violence seen in recent weeks as well as to declare their support for the police and Emmanuel Macron's government.
Anti-government "yellow vests" protests continued on Saturday (January 26) with numbers totaling 69,000 across France and 4,000 in Paris, with marches mostly peaceful apart from several clashes with police near the end of the day as well as during the "yellow night" protest staged at Place de la Republique on Saturday (26 January) evening.
Sunday's marchers chanted slogans such as 'I love my Republic' and 'stop the violence' while on several occasions demonstrators broke into song with rousing renditions of the national anthem.
Arriving at Place de la Bastille, a small group of around 20 "yellow vest" protesters greeted them but were kept separate by police.
