Paris police and store owners are bracing for new violence at protests Saturday, despite President Emmanuel Macron's surrender over a fuel tax hike that unleashed weeks of unrest.Some "yellow vest" protesters called for calm Thursday after the worst rioting in Paris in decades last weekend. A small union representing police administrative personnel called for a strike Saturday that could further complicate weekend security measures. Other police unions are not talking about strikes, but two police union officials told the Associated Press they are worried about radical troublemakers and others taking advantage of the protest atmosphere to cause even greater damage this Saturday.Police have come under criticism for failing to prevent damage to the Arc de Triomphe and stores along the famed Champs-Elysees in central Paris, as well as for violence against protesters.
