France extends ban on rallies until Nov 30

World Bulletin / News Desk

On Wednesday France banned two citizen rallies planned for a crunch climate conference due to open in Paris just two weeks after terror attacks killed 129 people in the French capital. French police now have extended that ban up to the November 30 meeting

Rallies to beat the drum for concerted political action against global warming had been planned for Nov. 29, the day before some 120 heads of state and government are meant to open the summit, and Dec. 12, the day after it closes.

“The situation created by the odious attacks of Nov. 13, and the investigations under way since then, require that security conditions be reinforced,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who will preside over the summit, said in a statement.

“To avoid any additional risk, the government has decided not to authorize climate marches in public places in Paris and in other French cities on Nov. 29 and Dec. 12.”
