A demonstration is scheduled to take place in Paris on Tuesday, November 17. The protest is being held over proposed national security legislation that would restrict the dissemination of video footage used to identify police officers and gendarmes 'with intent to harm'. Participants of the demonstration are set to gather at the National Assembly (parliament) at approximately 18:00 (local time).
The demonstration is expected to go ahead despite ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions.
A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration site. Clashes between protesters and police forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Paris are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, monitor developments, anticipate transportation and business disruptions near protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities
