A group of anti-Trump protesters planned a “No Trump Zone” in one of the largest public areas in Paris around the same time Bastille Day celebrations are set to take place.

The activists, who are part of the group “Paris Against Trump,” plan for the “No Trump Zone” event to be held at the Place de la Republique on July 13, the day before Bastille Day, NBC News reported.

The event will include musical performances and dancing.

On the actual day of the holiday, July 14, the protesters plan to march against President Trump, calling it the “Don’t Let Your Guard Down Against Trump” march to show that Trump is “not welcome” in Paris.

Members of the group wrote on the “No Trump Zone” event’s Facebook page saying that they do not agree with his policies on climate change and immigration, calling them “sexist, islamophobic, and racist.”

“For the people of France, who gave the Statue of Liberty to the American people, Trump is not welcome in Paris,” the post reads.

The protests are a stark contrast to the planned festivities for Bastille Day, which include a celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the U.S.’s decision to enter World War II.

Trump will be in Paris for the Bastille Day celebrations at French President Emmanuel Macron’s request as a way to show the partnership between the U.S. and France.

Macron invited the president to have dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant in the Eiffel Tower Thursday, where the two will enjoy stunning views of Paris while eating blue lobster and caviar.
