Gilets Jaunes Demonstrations Update to Students

This post is a republished version of an email communication sent by AUP Vice President for Security, Operations and Student Services Marc Montheard to current students on February 15, 2019, about the Gilets Jaunes demonstrations. It is part of our Safety & Security blog that rounds up all the latest news and updates for our community.

Dear Students,

It is time again... for our weekly update about the Yellow Vest movement. 

Like last week, the demonstrators have chosen to disclose little about their intentions for tomorrow. It seems that there will be a demonstration that will gather on the Champs-Elysées and will move towards the National Assembly and then the Champs de Mars. Some others are talking about blocking the Arc of Triumph. 

As always other areas might be impacted  and we continue to recommend that you tune in to the news in the morning, avoid the demonstrations and build an extra time for your commutes.

Stay safe and have a good weekend!
