France Alerte de sécurité

Thousands of LGBTQ+ activists gather for march against racial injustice in Paris on July 4; avoid all protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/7/2020, 12h00 until 6/7/2020, 11h59 (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION Paris

Event

Thousands of LGBTQ+ activists participated in a march against racial inequality and other injustices in Paris on Saturday, July 4. The marchers traveled from Moulin Rouge cabaret in Pigalle to Place de la Republique. The capital's official Pride Parade has been postponed until November because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, but organizers decided to hold a more politically motivated march in support of recent Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests in the interim.

Further demonstrations in support of the BLM movement are to be expected in Paris and other major urban centers across France in the near term.

Context

Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters gathered in Minneapolis (Minnesota state) on May 26 after George Floyd died while being arrested by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. The four arresting police officers were subsequently fired, and one has since been charged with murder. Clashes ensued between protesters and riot police; with demonstrators throwing bricks and projectiles at police and police property, and police responding with tear gas and rubber bullets as they attempted to disperse the crowds. Protests have since spread to a number of cities across the US and internationally.

Advice

Individuals in Paris are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions by local authorities.
