President Donald Trump is due to hold a rally in Dallas (Texas state) on Thursday, October 17. Participants will gather at 19:00 (local time) at the American Airlines Center. A democratic presidential candidate, Beto O'Rourke, has called for a counter-rally on the same day. O'Rourke's supporters plan to meet at the The Theatre in Grand Prairie from 18:00. Several other civil society groups have also called for counter-protests, and participants plan to gather directly outside the American Airlines Center from 18:00.
A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected near the rally and near all protest sites.
Individuals in Dallas are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all political demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and refrain from discussing political topics in public or on social media.
