The far-right political party, Stram Kurs (SK), is planning to hold multiple demonstrations in the capital Copenhagen on Wednesday, April 17. One demonstration is expected to take place at 15:00 (local time) at the football field located in the Bagsværd district of the capital, while the second demonstration will take place at 17:00 (local time) in front of the Gammel Gymnasium located in the Hellerup district. Demonstrators intend to protest against the presence of the Muslim population and Denmark's current immigration policies. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are likely. Clashes between demonstrators and security forces or potential counterprotesters cannot be ruled out.
Several anti-Muslim protests and related counter-demonstrations have taken place in recent days across Denmark, notably following the Christchurch attack in New Zealand on March 15. Danish police have prohibited similar demonstrations in Copenhagen in recent weeks.
Individuals in Copenhagen are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by the local authorities.
