A climate change protest is scheduled to take place in Cape Town on Friday, June 14. Protesters are expected to gather at 12:00 (local time) at the Louis Botha Statue, outside the parliament building, and then march from 13:00 to the City Hall building.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are likely in Cape Town on Friday.
The rally is organized as part of the "Fridays for Future" movement, an international student movement initiated by Greta Thunberg, a teenage Swedish climate activist, demanding more effective government action on climate change issues.
Individuals in Cape Town are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence around the demonstration, and avoid all public or political demonstrations as a precaution.
