France Alerte de sécurité

Demonstration by so-called black block demonstration in Reims June 29; heightened security presence expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 26/6/2019, 12h00 until 29/6/2019, 11h59 (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION Reims

Event

A demonstration by so-called "black bloc" protesters is slated to take place in Reims (Grand Est region) on Saturday, June 29. The event is being organized amid planned "yellow vest" protests. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area. Clashes between protesters and security forces, as well as deliberate property damage by protesters, are likely. 

Context

So-called "black bloc" protesters clashed with police and caused property destruction in Reims amid "yellow vest" protests on May 18; at least 12 protesters were arrested during the demonstration. 

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. Demonstrations have continued despite French government proposals to address protesters' concerns. President Emmanuel Macron announced a series of reforms on April 25, including closing corporate tax loopholes, income tax cuts, linking pensions to inflation by 2020, and reforms to referendum processes, among others.

Advice

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