France News Alert

Demonstration reported at Panthéon in Paris July 12 in support of undocumented immigrants; heightened security measures and localized transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/12/2019, 12:00 AM until 7/13/2019, 11:59 PM (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION France, Paris


Some 300 protesters have occupied the Panthéon in Paris as of Friday afternoon (local time), July 12. Participants are reportedly calling for greater rights for undocumented immigrants. Organizers have threatened to remain on site until Prime Minister Édouard Philippe agrees to a meeting.  

A heightened security presence is anticipated near the demonstration. Localized transportation and business disruptions are likely near protest sites, and clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out. 


Individuals in France are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, budget extra time to reach their destinations if traveling through areas affected by demonstrations, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
