Climate activists are planning to stage a demonstration in the capital Rome on Friday, April 19, to demand action on climate issues. Protesters are expected to gather at Piazza del Popolo at 10:00 (local time). The protest is likely to be well attended as Greta Thunberg is expected to address demonstrators. A heightened security presence, along with localized transportation disruptions are to be anticipated in the vicinity of the event.
The rally is organized as part of the "Fridays for future" movement, an international student movement initiated by Thunberg, a teenage Swedish climate activist, demanding more effective government action on climate change issues.
Individuals in Rome are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence near the demonstration site, and avoid all public or political demonstrations as a precaution.
