There was plenty of rain in many parts of France today but the Yellow Vests protests continued. There are two different estimates with "The Yellow Number" issuing its final number Sunday at Noon.
The government's number is 200 short of last week's estimate 18,800.
Paris was not designated as a major center of protest and only 1200 marched, many with umbrellas.
Ruptly video of today's Paris Yellow Vests procession....
In Nantes authorities announced in advance that 500 anarchist "black blocs" would be in the city and they imposed controls around the city.
Here is a 13 minute video of the protest with much more black than yellow in evidence. Some Yellow Vests conveyed traditional messaging like that of the "Citizens Initiative Referendum" but there were others in the crowd and formations of riot police were there to fight them.
Flash bang rounds fired by the police and a member of the media working for "CNews" was hit in the abdomen.
26 arrests and police say they are investigating after a police officer drew a weapon at a car trying to drive through their blockade in Nantes today. The car turned around after the firearm was produced.
The police say 2200 protesters in Nantes today.

Why should anyone "read more" at your blog? Nothing prevents
you from posting the whole thing right here on Free Republic.
Are you trying to get clicks to raise money for something?
A tragic illness or a drug habit or an addiction to hookers?
Maybe you could set up a "Go-Fund-Me" page or something.
You know something HG.
There are less and less people here at FR.
Look at our year long fundraising efforts.
We certainly are not attracting the new ones we need.
Lets not drive away any more of the people who are here.
Many people post their info here.
I would hate to
If true, it's probably due to all the idiotic personal blogs being promoted.
How have you made this numeric determination?
