PARIS (AP) The Latest on France protests (all times local):
French left-wing opposition parties are seeking a no-confidence vote in President Emmanuel Macron's government amid growing protests and fears of violence.
The Socialist Party, far-left Defiant France and the Communist Party are setting aside their divisions and promising to submit the request to the lower house of parliament, or National Assembly, on Monday. The assembly would hold a no-confidence motion within 48 hours of the request.
The left-wing parties alone don't have nearly enough votes to bring down the government, since Macron's centrist Republic on the Move party has a strong majority in the 577-seat house. But they are trying to attract support from other opposition forces.
The government is trying to calm tensions but with little success. The transport minister met Thursday with truckers' unions but they maintained their promise to go on strike Sunday.

I wonder if “Mommy” is influencing Macron’s decisions.
Also, people may be pi$$ed, but I think its obvious that far left and anarchist groups are taking the opportunity to seed violence into the demonstrations at every opportunity.
France is Germany’s slave. France is not a great nation.
Tracey Ullman Show loves to prop up the EU and cut down America, BREXIT, Fox and Trump. I wonder if she will touch this...
Whenever someone during the election campaign pointed out the weirdness of Macron’s marriage and wondered if it said something about his character they were shouted down. The establishment both in France and elsewhere wanted this guy and no dissent was tolerated. Well, now they’ve got him and he’s failing disastrously.
There you go, Macron the hero. He has ticked off truckers enough to cause a strike. No trucks equals less carbon pollution equals Macron saving the planet. As ridiculous as this sounds the American left and its media toadies would be in complete agreement.
“Tracey Ullman Show loves to prop up the EU”
How would one know this? Wouldn’t it require actually watching this persons’s show? A prospect I find unpalatable.
Oh, check this out...
The French government is going to try to buy them off. And it won’t ruin competitiveness. ROTF!!!
She does some funny stuff. She is talented. She will poke fun at the EU too. Her Merkel is outstanding.
They have been brainwashed since infancy to believe that capitalism is destroying the world, and unless it is undone and overthrown we are all going to die It's a ridiculous worldview, but one that cannot be fought with reason and logic.
I guess it depends on how you define great nation. France is a nuclear power. It has the worlds 6th largest economy and the 21st highest per capita GDP$43,600. It has a permanent seat on the UN Security Council, one of five nations having that power.
Trump Curse looks like it is keying up its next hit.
Tracey does a great Merkel impression. Hilarious.
That’s the political spectrum in France.
You have the Left, the Far-Left, and the Far-Far-Left.
Her Mrs. Macron is good too.
This cracks me up because it is a picture of the Rockville, MD civic center mansion. LOL!...
Global Warming brings down another one ,LOL
Macaroni a “centrist”?!? ROTFLAICGU
