Christian leaders are planning to hold a protest in the capital Luanda on Saturday, December 1. The Order of Evangelical Pastors of Angola (OPEA) are calling for supporters to gather at Santa Ana Cemetery starting at 08:00 (local time). Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are possible around the protest site.
The OPEA is protesting the government’s decision to close around 500 non-denominational Christian churches throughout the country during security operations in November. OPEA leaders claim that freedom of religion is at risk and that the government did not coordinate with the churches.
Individuals in Luanda are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution.
