    Following sustained anti-government protests the French government has announced plans to strictly control what it calls ‘unsanctioned’ protests. Wearing masks on demonstrations will also be prohibited. Speaking on French TV channel TF1, Prime Minister Philippe said the government would support a “new law punishing those who do not respect the requirement to declare [protests], those who take part in unauthorised demonstrations and those who arrive at demonstrations wearing face masks”. Protest leaders have begun to be arrested. A truck driver, Eric Drouet, was arrested last week for organising an ‘unsanctioned’ protest. Some politicians want to go further. Laurent Wauquiez, leader...

    Eric Drouet, one of the visible figures of the Yellow Vests protest movement, was arrested near the Palace de la Concorde in Paris at 9pm local time Wednesday.

His arrest follows President Emmanuel Macron's tough New Year's Eve message about "hate" coming from the ranks of the Yellow Vests. Macron promised order: "without compromise" in France in the coming year. Others were arrested with Drouet. He was taken away under arrest by a swarm of police. Drouet's lawyer...

    One of the leaders of the "yellow vest" anti-government demonstrations, Eric Drouet, was detained by French police and placed in custody on Wednesday for organising a central Paris protest without declaring it, according to a source at the prosecutors office.

A few dozen demonstrators had gathered outside a McDonalds near France's famous Arc de Triomphe war monument and had been waiting for Drouet to arrive early Wednesday evening. "Yellow vest" demonstrations -- so-called after the high-visibility...
