Several labor unions representing workers at the state-owned electric utility provider, Électricité de France (EDF), have called for a nationwide strike on Thursday, October 17, to demand the company abandon the "Hercule" project.
A heightened security presence, as well as disruptions to power, communications, and transport services are expected during the strike period. Associated protests are possible in the capital Paris.
Individuals in France, and Paris in particular, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, and anticipate power outages and transportation and business disruptions.
