The Paris police chief, Didier Lallement, took this Saturday two decrees concerning the new day of mobilization Tuesday against the
pension reform, one relating to the closure of businesses, the other on perimeter prohibitions.

Like last Thursday, the prefect has taken a decree obliging businesses and establishments located on the route – from Place Vauban (7th) to Place Denfer-Rochereau (14th) – to close the time of the event.

Parking prohibited on the course

It also asks the owners or managers to take "means of protecting their establishments against damage and looting", to close their terraces and to remove all objects and furniture that could be used as projectiles. Parking is also prohibited on the route of the procession.

The prefect of police also took a decree prohibiting movement and demonstration for the perimeters around the Elysée and the Ministry of the Interior, in the sectors of the National Assembly, the Hotel Matignon and from the Notre-Dame-de-Paris cathedral.

During the first day of an interprofessional event last Thursday, the mobilization was massive in the street with more than 800,000 protesters according to the Ministry of the Interior. In the capital, incidents broke out on the course.
