France Alerte de sécurité

Police officers stage demonstration on Paris’ Champs-Elysees on June 12 against restraint holds ban; anticipate localized disruptions

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/6/2020, 12h00 until 12/6/2020, 11h59 (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION Paris

Event

Hundreds of police officers staged a demonstration on Paris' Champs-Elysees on Friday, June 12, against newly introduced restrictions on the use of chokeholds. Dozens of vehicles were reportedly parked around the Arc de Triomphe, blocking traffic, as part of the protests.

Localized disruptions are likely in the area in the near term.

Context

On Monday, June 8, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner announced a ban on the use of chokeholds and similar restraint techniques by police officers in response to criticism of the tactic following protests over the recent police-related death of George Floyd in the US. However, the move has been opposed by police unions.

Advice

Those in Paris are advised to monitor developments, avoid demonstrations, anticipate a localized disruption near protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
