Around 100,000 protesters are expected to gather at the National Assembly building at 14:00 (local time). Protesters will also hold a memorial at the building for a taxi driver who died after self-immolating on December 10 in an apparent protest to the service's launch. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are anticipated in the area.
