Gabon News Alert

Gabon’s largest labor union to hold protest march in Libreville on December 18; associated disruptions possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/18/2018, 12:00 AM until 12/18/2018, 11:59 PM (Africa/Libreville). COUNTRY/REGION Libreville


Gabon's largest labor union, Unity Dynamics (DU), will hold a protest march on Tuesday, December 18, in Libreville. Demonstrators are expected to gather at 08:00 (local time) at the Rond-point de la Democratie. Union leaders have demanded the government cancel the current austerity measures and for the president of the Constitutional Court to resign. This demonstration follows a previous nationwide strike held on December 10-12.


On June 21, the government announced plans for additional austerity measures, including cuts to civil servant salaries, prompting public outcry. Numerous protests and strikes have taken place in Gabon in recent months in response to socioeconomic conditions and the unpopular government austerity policies.


Individuals in Gabon, particularly in Libreville, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of potential violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
