The Summary Judge of the Council of State Suspends the General and Absolute Ban on Demonstrating on the Public Highway (Le Juge des Référés du Conseil d’État Suspend L’interdiction Générale et Absolue de Manifester sur la Voie Publique)

Date Enacted: June 2020
Country: France

The French Council of State decided that “the ban on demonstrations” resulting from a May 31, 2020 decree that prohibited “gatherings, meetings or activities bringing together more than ten people” in public spaces was “not justified” since it was possible for “barrier measures” to “be respected.”
