Instruction to use drones for intelligence in May 1 demonstrations in France

According to Le Figaro’s report, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has ordered police chiefs to use drones for intelligence purposes in mass demonstrations to be held across the country tomorrow.

The Minister of the Interior asked the police chiefs to be present at the demonstrations and to stay in touch to calm the potential tensions between the law enforcement officers and the unions.

12 thousand police will be on duty across the country, 5 thousand of which will be in the capital Paris, in the demonstrations tomorrow, where the extension of the retirement age by 2 years will also be protested.

Despite causing protests in the country on April 19, a decree was issued allowing security forces to use drones in demonstrations.

Although drones were allowed to be used in demonstrations under the Security Law adopted in 2022 in France, the decision was suspended for a while because it led to protests.

pension reform

Mass demonstrations broke out in France on March 16, following the government’s decision to pass the bill, which includes increasing the retirement age from 62 to 64, without voting.

Violence took place in many parts of the country between the police and the demonstrators, who responded harshly to the demonstrations.

More than 1,000 people have been detained in protests across the country since March 16.

The Constitutional Council, to which the opposition and the government applied to determine whether the reform was in conformity with the constitution, approved the article of the draft law that increased the retirement age to 64, and rejected the 6 articles in whole or in part.

The bill was signed by the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and published in the Official Gazette.
