A demonstration is scheduled to take place in Marseille over coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions on Wednesday, November 26. The demonstration has been organized by restaurateurs and is being held to protest against COVID-19 related restrictions that have forced restaurants and cafes to close during the current lockdown. Participants are set to gather at approximately 14:00 (local time) at the Old Port before marching towards the Prefecture.
The demonstration is expected to pass off peacefully. However, police are likely to enforce COVID-19 restrictions.
A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration.
Those in Marseille are advised to monitor the situation, avoid demonstrations and political gatherings as a precaution, and heed any instructions issued by local authorities.
