Parliament Adopts Rave-Control Measure

November 01, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

France's parliament adopted a measure that will give authorities more control over raves--all-night techno dance parties that sometimes draw thousands of young people.

The measure, which requires rave organizers to give local authorities advance notice of parties, was part of a broad package on security passed in the National Assembly.

Deaths during rave parties in France--including several drug overdoses--have fueled a political battle.

The rave control effort began in April when conservative lawmaker Thierry Mariani introduced a bill requiring organizers to give notice to authorities. That bill died.
