PARIS - French authorities will close dozens of museums, tourism sites and shops on Saturday, including the Eiffel Tower and Louvre, fearing a recurrence of last weeks violence in Paris, officials said on Thursday.
We cannot take the risk when we know the threat, Culture Minister Franck Riester told RTL radio, adding that far-right and far-left agitators were planning to hijack rallies by yellow vest protesters in Paris.
He said the Louvre museum, Orsay museum, the two operas, and the Grand Palais were among the sites that would be closed a week after rioters looted and defaced the Arc de Triomphe.

Root Cause: Global Warming Hysteria.
Macron is using false threats to punish poor and low income French persons.
Time to start getting all the art out of France. At least start the planning
This story is one of the rare cases when a newspaper actually uses the words “far left” in the minister’s quote (from Reuters).
Interestingly enough this long Manchester Guardian article misses out that bit of the quote and follows the WaPo and NYT style guide of ‘left wing” only applying to aircraft...:^)
Is there a fear the Eiffel Tower will be burned?
they are much better when viewed from 3.600+ miles away
different twitter feeds out of france suggest that the protests may reach the level equivalent to a coup attempt. perhaps a bit of a reach but Paris is battening down the hatches and the govt is mobilizing a lot of firepower in response.
Viva la resistance!
Reuters “rioters looted and defaced the Arc de Triomphe.”
Not “protestors” like the democrat media often says. I wonder how the so-called “news” media chooses which term to use.
Socialism is all fun and games until you run out of other people’s money. Now that they have to pay for their bennies from their own pockets, they’re angry.
Right,Left,Yellow Jackets and Muzzies will burn France down. All of this after the fool Macron spewed his false nonsense about Nationalism and poking President Trump.
