Traditional Bible Reading Marathon Not Permitted in Paris

Country: France

Date of incident: October 1, 2012

Evangelical Protestants who have organized an annual "Marathon of the Bible" with over 500 participants reading and sharing in Paris since 2003, did not obtain the permission to hold a session in 2012.

So far, the event had been organized every year in the Place de la Bastille in the eleventh city district without any problems. In 2012 the group neither received an explanation from the Prefecture of Police nor from the City of Paris.
