The fundraising website Leetchi initially defended its hosting of the appeal, saying that as a platform it was required to remain "neutral".

According to BFMTV news channel, the fund had been raised to about 120,000 euros (137,339 dollars) earlier on Tuesday.

French "yellow vest" protesters marched through Paris and other cities on Saturday to highlight their struggle to make ends meet, a day after President Emmanuel Macron's government hardened its stance against them.

Several men driving a forklift truck also smashed open the doors to the ministry building of government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux in Paris, who denounced the break-in as an "unacceptable attack on the Republic".

"We are going to get our bread back...you're making money with our dough, and we're fed up", said protester Maxime Nicolle in a video message shared on YouTube.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe makes "public order" announcements in the face of recent protest violence across France, on January 7, 2019. She pointed to the fact that RT resources had 20 times more views of the reports about the yellow vests protests than French media.

Some yellow vest protesters are consider launching their own bid, which potentially could shuffle the cards.

The "yellow vest" demonstrations have been frequently violent since they began in late November, particularly on December 1 when crowds ransacked a museum in the Arc de Triomphe and daubed graffiti on the famed monument.

The protests started in November to oppose fuel tax hikes and have expanded into broader public rejections of Macron's economic policies, deemed to favor the rich.
