French police call for army to help quell riots amid warnings of ‘pre-revolutionary’ unrest

Olivier Faure, head of the Socialist Party, also demanded the restoration of a wealth tax Mr Macron partially scrapped at the start of his presidency – a move that critics claim proves he is on the side of the rich.

“He’ got to come down from Mount Olympus,” he said.

Marine Le Pen, head of the far-Right National Rally, warned Mr Macron had “only a few more hours” to stop the revolt spiralling out of control.

Without “important, audible and immediate” measures, she predicted, he risked becoming “the first president in half a century to give the order to fire on French people.”
