Hundreds of Oromia residents in at least ten towns protested continued violence in their region on Monday, December 3. The protesters demanded official action be taken to curb the violence that has left at least 30 people, including 17 members of the security forces, killed and tens of thousands more displaced in recent months. Further protests and associated disruptions are possible in the area, along with continued conflict in Oromia, in the near term.
Individuals in Oromia are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate further protests, a heightened security presence, and associated transportation and business disruptions, and avoid all public demonstrations due to the risk of violence.
