Yellow Vest marches scheduled in Paris for September 12; avoid all gatherings

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/10/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/13/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION Paris

Event

Yellow Vest activists have called for multiple gatherings to be held in Paris on Saturday, September 12. Participants of the main event are set to gather at approximately 09:00 (local time) at the Champs-Elysees. Clashes between security forces and demonstrators cannot be ruled out.

Associated business and transportation disruptions are to be anticipated near the demonstration site, as well as a heightened security presence.

Context

The "Yellow Vest" movement began on November 17, 2018, to protest rising fuel prices and a planned fuel tax. It has since grown to encompass a number of popular grievances against the French government. Some protests have turned violent and acts of vandalism and looting have been reported, although the scale of the protests has diminished since their height in December 2018. Demonstrations have continued despite French government proposals to address protesters' concerns.

Advice

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