This comparison is hateful. We must all rise up against this ignominy,” Holocaust survivor Joseph Szwarc said Sunday during a ceremony commemorating victims of antisemitic and racist acts by the French state, which collaborated with Adolf Hitler’s regime. “I wore the star, I know what that is, I still have it in my flesh,” Szwarc, who was deported from France by the Nazis, said with tears in his eyes. “It is everyone’s duty to not allow this outrageous, antisemitic, racist wave to...

    PARIS (Reuters) - French authorities deployed a heavy police presence in Paris and used tear gas on Saturday as the "yellow vest" movement returned to the capital after being dampened by the coronavirus crisis. Several hundred demonstrators gathered at two squares in Paris for authorised marches. One cortege set off without incident but the other march was delayed after police used tear gas to disperse protestors who left the designated route and some of whom set fire to waste bins and a car. The authorities had banned protests in a central zone including the Champs-Elysees, the scene of rioting at the height of the yellow vest movement nearly two years ago when anger over fuel taxes and President Emmanuel Macron's style of rule brought hundreds of thousands onto the streets across France. Police said they had made 154 arrests by 1 pm local time (1100 GMT). The renewed mobilisation of the yellow vests, named after motorists' high-visibility jackets that became the symbol of the movement, comes as France is grappling with a resurgence in cases of the novel coronavirus.

    PARIS (AP) — Activists relaunched France’s yellow vest movement Saturday after the disruptive demonstrations against Emmanuel Macron’s presidency and perceived elitism tapered off during the coronavirus pandemic. Paris police said that more than 120 people were stopped and over 25 have been placed in custody so far in the French capital. Organizers hope the fresh day-long marches will attract many thousands of participants. Paris authorities designated areas such as the Champs-Elysees Avenue off-limits, and parts of the Paris metro along the famed avenue were temporarily closed. The yellow vest movement began in fall 2018 to protest a fuel tax hike that was said to punish the poorest French. Named for the florescent vests motorists are required to carry in France, it morphed into more than a year of weekly anti-government protests that caused multiple deaths and hundreds of injuries.

    POITIERS, France (AP) — Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan secured his second stage victory at this year’s Tour de France in a chaotic dash to the finish Wednesday that saw Peter Sagan penalized for barging a rival.

The irregular move cost Sagan his second place behind Ewan. The Slovakian was dropped back to 85th place. Irish rider Sam Bennett was bumped up to second and Van Aert to third. In the race for the overall win, Primoz Roglic stayed safe on the rolling ride to Poitiers to keep the race leader’s yellow jersey.

The 25-year-old Ewan, racing for the Lotto Soudal team, also won Stage 3 and three stages at his inaugural Tour last...

    LAVAUR, France (AP) — Stage 7 of the Tour de France started Friday with British rider Adam Yates wearing the race leader’s yellow jersey and the team of three-time world champion Peter Sagan causing havoc by setting a furious pace at the start of the 168-kilometer (104-mile) route into southwest France. The sustained burst of speed by Sagan’s Bora-Hansgrohe teammates from the get-go Friday had the desired effect of quickly dropping a host of riders who could compete against him if the stage finishes in a bunch sprint at the end in Lavaur. Among those who dropped off the back of the pack as Bora piled on pressure at the front on the first of three modest climbs after the start in Millau were sprinters Alexander Kristoff, the winner of Stage 1, and Caleb Ewan, who won Stage 3.
