Paris: Yellow Vest Anger Mixes With Notre Dame Mourning

PSICOGRAFIA INEDITA DE PARRAVICINI SOBRE EL INCENDIO DE LA CATEDRAL DE NOTRE DAME Researcher Claims Argentinian Prophet ‘Predicted Notre Dame Fire’ Decades Ago

This is more than last week's protest, which drew 7,500 demonstrators, but represents only a fraction of the record 282,000 estimated on the first day of protests on November 17.

But some visitors showed solidarity with the yellow vest cause.

Friday's meeting is taking place while architects and experts are assessing how to stabilize the World Heritage Site's structure and protect it from the rain.

Paris firefighters - who struggled earlier this week to prevent the 12th-century Notre Dame from collapsing - quickly responded to extinguish the flames at Saturday's protest.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said at a press conference on Friday that he believed extremists and vandals were planning to continue their campaign of rioting, setting fires, and looting - along the lines of scenes on the Champs Elysee in March.

He said the building survey "will take several days or weeks".

Since 2013, as part of a city initiative to support biodiversity in Paris, Notre Dame has been home to three beehives on a roof beneath the rose window.

"I am so relieved".

And on Friday, the National Council of the Order of Doctors said they had contacted the health minstry and France's data protection watchdog CNIL, raising questions about patient confidentiality.

European bees stay by their hive when they sense danger, unlike other bee species.

They were kept at Notre Dame in an effort to increase the number of bees in Paris.

In another development, the 180,000 bees kept in hives in the cathedral that were thought to have perished in the fire have been discovered alive.

Although all French polls show that Macron's popularity has remain low since a tax increase on retirees a year ago, they suggest his party may be ahead in France's May 26 European Parliament election, with Marine Le Pen's far-right party, the National Rally, close behind.

Some yellow vest critics accuse Macron of trying to exploit the fire for political gain. Leaked details of the speech suggest he was going to announce tax cuts for poor households and a boost to small pensions, among other measures.

The warning comes after weeks of relative calm, with the marches attracting declining numbers as yellow-vest protesters waited for President Emmanuel Macron's expected response to their various demands which include lower taxes and more government services.

Protest organisers, who have repeatedly said the official figures are underestimated, put the turnout across the country at more than 100,000.
