Event

Government officials denied the group permission to hold the protest, but CTVC leaders have vowed to carry out the rally as planned. Supporters are being asked to gather near the National Assembly and the Ministry of Energy and Oil building. The CTVC is protesting recent shortages of butane gas and the perceived failure of the government to address the issue. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected around protest sites. It is likely that security personnel will use force to disperse the protesters.

Individuals in N'Djamena are advised to avoid all demonstrations and protests as a precaution, prepare for localized traffic disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
