Supporters of the opposition civil society group Y'en a marre took to the streets of Dakar on Saturday, November 17, to protest the government's decision to ban an organization which had been the group's main source of revenue. Supporters of the group are planning to stage more protests in the capital over the coming week (November 19-24). Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are likely in the vicinity of any event. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Y'en a Marre is a civil society group created in 2011 to protest perceived poor governance and support youth mobilization.
Individuals in Dakar are advised to remain vigilant and avoid any form of public demonstrations or public gatherings due to the risk of violence.
