A silent march is in protest of a ban on political protests and expression, including a recently banned march on Saturday, June 1. Details are still emerging regarding the time and location of the march, though the previous march was planned from Collège Saint Joseph to the Place de l'Indépendance. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected in Lomé. Clashes between demonstrators and security forces cannot be ruled out.
