The authorities in Paris have banned public demonstrations following the recent terror attacks, including a major march on Sunday November 29th on the eve of the Paris climate change conference COP 21, and a similar mass demonstration two weeks later. French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, who will be the official conference chairman, said the decision had been taken to “avoid additional risks” following the coordinated bombing and shooting attacks that struck the French capital on Friday, November 13th.
