Tel Aviv beach day in Paris causes controversy and possible protests

The City of Paris dedicated today’s “beach-on-the-Seine” festival to celebrate Tel Aviv, sparking outrage from pro-Palestinians. Protesters plan a “Gaza Plage” event near the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Advice For Travellers

From mid-July to mid-August, the municipality of Paris runs a temporary artificial beach along River Seine. Travellers in Paris may encounter groups protesting these events and may want to avoid the areas today.
