French protesters angry over fuel taxes clash with police

French police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse violent demonstrators in Paris on Saturday, as thousands gathered in the capital and beyond and staged road blockades to vent anger against rising fuel taxes. Thousands of police were deployed nationwide to contain the eighth day of deadly demonstrations that started as protests against tax but morphed into a rebuke of President Emmanuel Macron and the perceived elitism of France's ruling class. Two people have been killed since Nov. 17 in protest-related tragedies. Tense clashes on the Champs-Elysees that ended by dusk Saturday saw police face off with demonstrators who...

Time for France to give back looted African art, experts say

African artworks held in French museums — richly carved thrones, doors to a royal kingdom, wooden statues imbued with spiritual meaning — may be heading back home to Africa at last. French President Emmanuel Macron, trying to turn the page on France's colonial past , received a report Friday on returning art looted from African lands. From Senegal to Ethiopia, artists, governments and museums eagerly awaited the report by French art historian Benedicte Savoy and Senegalese economist Felwine Sarr, and commissioned by Macron himself. It recommends that French museums give back works that were taken without consent, if African countries...

French troops deployed amid protests on Reunion island

Gas price protests have simmered in France and its overseas territories since Saturday. On Reunion, the protests unleashed broader anger over poverty that is much more widespread than on the French mainland. French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday night defended government efforts to boost the economy on Reunion but also...

France's Macron defends Europe from all sides _ including US

After French President Emmanuel Macron said Europe needs to defend itself from the United States, aides said he was misunderstood. But the idea isn't so far-fetched. Macron is leading a rearguard action to salvage the system of international cooperation the U.S. helped build, but which President Donald Trump has chipped away at since taking office. While Trump came all the way to Paris for commemorations marking 100 years since the armistice that ended World War I, he's skipping an international peace forum that Macron is launching Sunday. The forum is part of Macron's efforts to defend the idea that nations...

France calls for new global coalition of 'goodwill powers'

France's leaders proposed a new alliance of "goodwill powers" on Friday in an attempt to revive the type of global diplomacy that they say is being jeopardized by the United States, Russia and other countries that favor unilateralism over cooperation. French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced the plan during a speech at Harvard University, suggesting that Europe should align itself with countries like India, Australia, Mexico and other "powerful democracies" that share a commitment to multilateralism. His speech described an erosion of the brand of diplomacy that brought nations together following World War II and led to the...
