Supporters of opposition parties have called for a demonstration outside the parliament building in Cairo on Thursday, March 28, from 12:00 (local time) to 14:00. Although organizers have requested authorization for the gathering, a ban on demonstrations remains in place amid an ongoing state of emergency, and it is not immediately clear if officials will allow the protest.
Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration site. Clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out.
Several leaders of opposition parties in Egypt filed a demonstration notice with local officials on March 24, expressing their intent to organize a protest on March 28 to denounce proposed constitutional amendments under consideration by the House of Representatives.
Individuals in Cairo are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the risk of violence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
