Hundreds of social and healthcare workers are planning to hold a protest in central Angers (Maine-et-Loire department; Pays de la Loire region) on Thursday, November 26, over their exclusion from a recent government public sector pay increase. Demonstrators are due to gather in front of the departmental Prefecture on Place Michel Debre at 14:00 (local time).
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration. Although the event is expected to be largely peaceful, isolated clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Those in Angers are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the vicinity of the demonstration as a precaution, and heed any instructions issued by local authorities.
