Beginning at 1430 local time (1230 UTC) on 13 June 2020, demonstrators plan to march from Place de la République to Place de l’Opéra in the capital Paris to protest racism and police violence. Authorities have requested that businesses along the protest route close down and clear any public areas of items, such as furniture or displays, which could be used to cause damage. Additional demonstrators are expected in Marseille’s Old Port area, Lyon’s La Place Bellecour, Montpellier’s Place de la Comédie, Nantes’ Place du Bouffay, Saint-Nazaire and Strasbourg. Travelers and expatriates in these French cities should avoid all large gatherings, as such demonstrations are likely to turn violent and could collaterally affect those in the vicinity of protest sites.
