Event

"Yellow Vest" protesters have called for demonstrations on Saturday, November 9. In Paris, protesters plan to gather at 12:00 (local time) at the Porte de Clichy metro station before heading to the Stalingrad metro station at 14:00. Security forces may cordon off the areas surrounding the Champs-Elysées, the Elysée Palace, the National Assembly, and Notre-Dame during the protests to prevent acts of violence and vandalism.

Another protest is scheduled to take place in Montpellier starting at 13:00 at Place de la Comédie. Associated protests are possible in other urban centers.

Additional "Yellow Vest" protests are to be expected across France, specifically on Saturdays. A heightened security presence along with localized transportation and business disruptions are anticipated near all demonstration sites. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.

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.

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 France are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, budget extra time to reach their destinations if traveling through areas affected by demonstrations, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
