Paris, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 15th May, 2021 ) :Pro-Palestinian demonstrators vowed to hold a protest in Paris on Saturday despite a police ban to avoid any flare-up in anti-Semitic violence after the worst fighting between Israel and Hamas since a 2014 war.
"If there were genuine risks of public disorder, of serious problems, they would have prohibited it right away," he told a press conference.
"They banned it at the last minute -- it's unacceptable," he said.
Several groups were to take part in the Paris demo, including anti-fascist associations, the citizens' activist group Attac and the far-left New Anti-Capitalist party.
A lawyer for the groups, Sefen Guez Guez, denounced the police ban as "disproportionate" and "politically motivated."Another group hoping to stage a pro-Palestinian protest Saturday in Paris filed an appeal of a similar ban with the State Council, France's highest administrative court.
