Civil society groups and opposition parties have called for a demonstration to take place in Dakar on Friday, October 12, despite a ban on demonstrations. According to local sources, the demonstration is being organized by the Dog Bummi Gacé coalition to denounce the policies of President Macky Sall's government. Demonstrators are expected to rally at 15:00 (local time) in front of the Ministry of Interior and Public Security. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the event. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Dakar are advised to remain vigilant and avoid any form of public demonstrations or public gatherings due to the risk of violence.
