On Saturday, May 30, thousands of people gathered at a car factory in Maubeuge (Nord department) to protest against the automobile company's decision to cut jobs in France. The protests reportedly started at 10:00 (local time), with a march to the Maubeuge town hall expected to take place. The Maubeuge factory has been closed since Friday, May 29, with production expected to move to another town in the region. Further protests are likely should the closure prove definitive.
Individuals in France are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
