The Platform Against Corruption and Unemployment in Mali (CCP) and other associations have called for nationwide protests on Saturday, August 24, in support of the Malian armed forces and to demand better equipment for the national military.
In Bamako, protesters are expected to gather at Boulevard de l'Indépendance. In other urban centers the CCP called for demonstrations outside the municipalities. The exact times of the protests were not immediately available.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near all protest sites.
Individuals in Mali, particularly in Bamako, are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
