Youth For Climate activists have called on environmental supporters to gather in Paris and the Ile-de-France region on Friday, November 29, for a "Block Friday" action aiming to denounce the commercial "Black Friday" retail event and to call for more global climate action. Information regarding the time and place remain unclear as of Wednesday, November 20, though protests should be expected in central districts.

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be anticipated around the demonstration.


Individuals in Paris and the Ile de France region are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
