Protests organized by feminist groups are scheduled to occur throughout France on Friday, July 10, against the nomination of Gérald Darmanin and Éric Dupond-Moretti to join the government. Darmanin, the new minister of the interior and Dupond-Moretti, the minister of Justice, have been accused of sexual misconduct in the past. Rallies are to take place in Paris, Marseille, Grenoble, Rennes, Besançon, Orléans, Montpellier, Rouen, Lyon, Lille, Angers, Nantes, and Caen, with protests possible in other French cities. In Paris, demonstrators will gather in front of the town hall at 18:00 (local time) to call for the dismissal of the ministers. Protests in other cities are likely to take place by town halls, courts of justice, or prefectures.
Further demonstrations are possible over the near term.
Those in France are advised to monitor developments, anticipate disruptions in the vicinity of protest sites, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
