The Extinction Rebellion (XR) environmental activist group has announced plans to carry out a week of civil disobedience in France from Sunday, October 11, through October 19. Rallies have been scheduled in the capital Paris, Bordeaux (Nouvelle-Aquitaine region), and Lyon (Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region), among several other cities. While XR has not yet released any additional details of specific events, previous demonstrations have seen the intentional blocking of roads and the disrupting of public transit services.

A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the event. Rallies are likely to occur in other locations across the country and many of the gatherings will likely be well attended.


Those in France are advised to monitor developments, avoid large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
