Event

Several labor unions have called for a protest in Paris on Saturday, December 4, to denounce the government's proposed universal pension reform. Participants plan to gather at 13:00 (local time) at Gare de Lyon before heading to Gare de l'est via Place de la Bastille and Place de la République. A related protest is also set to take place on Thursday, December 9, though organizers have not yet announced an exact meeting time or location.

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected along the march route.

Context

Thousands have protested across France in December 2019 to voice their opposition to the planned pension reform scheme. Subsequent ongoing nationwide strikes have caused significant disruptions to all forms of transportation. Strikes may continue for an indefinite period if the government does not abandon its proposed pension reform plan.

Advice

Individuals in Paris are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, monitor developments to the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
