Indeed, for the previous edition in 2023, nearly 5,000 police and gendarmes were mobilized to supervise some 100,000 participants. Announcements concerning traffic restrictions are expected shortly from the Paris Prefecture of Police.

The May 1st demonstration in Paris is not only an annual tradition, but also a means of expressing current social and political concerns. It promises to be a large-scale gathering, reflecting the tensions and aspirations of French society on the eve ofEuropean elections.
