Several trade unions have called on hospital staff and patients to protest in Paris on Thursday, November 14, in support of the public healthcare system. Unions are asking for better working conditions including budget increases, higher salaries, and the hiring of additional personnel, among other demands. Participants plan to gather between 12:00 and 14:00 (local time) at the Port Royal metro station before heading towards the Senate, the National Assembly, and the Prime Minister's office.
A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest.
Individuals in Paris are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and expect transportation disruptions.
