Paris_ The yellow vests are preparing Friday their 20th act of protests throughout France, with the cities of Avignon (Southeast) and Bordeaux (Southwest) as the focus of action for this weekend.

The members of the movement will take to the streets again for the 20th consecutive Saturday to show their rejection of the government's policy and to reinforce the demand for changes to allow greater social justice.

According to the organizers, the demonstrations will have special force in the south of the country, in Avignon and Bordeaux, to which demonstrators must arrive from various localities.

Protests, as usual, are also scheduled in Paris, while the authorities have already announced a ban on gathering on the Champs-Elysees and in front of the Arc de Triomphe.

The Interior Minister, Christophe Castaner, reported he had already given 'extremely precise instructions' to the Paris Police Prefecture to veto demonstrations on the famous avenue, claiming that the call is 'a new provocation for more acts of violence'.

Executive decided last week to ban protests in prominent places of this capital and other cities, to avoid events such as those occurred last March 16.

That Saturday some groups of agitators seriously damaged restaurants, shops and emblematic facilities of the Champs Elysees, and violent confrontations took place with the security forces.
