A nationwide strike called for by various unions is set to take place on Thursday, June 28. Transportation disruptions - potentially affecting air, rail, and public transit - are expected throughout the day, along with protests and consequent traffic disruptions nationwide. The largest march will be held in Paris; it is scheduled to start at 14:00 (local time) at Place de la Bastille and finish at Place de la République. Isolated incidents of violence (clashes, vandalism) are possible.
According to union representatives, the strike is being organized to defend the rights of workers, students, pensioners, and the unemployed.
Individuals in France are advised to keep abreast of the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, confirm travel itineraries, and allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
