Extinction Rebellion (XR) climate activists are scheduled to protest in Cape Town on Friday, November 8. Protesters are expected to gather at 12:00 (local time) near the Cape Town International Convention Centre 2 (CTICC 2), where the African Oil Week conference is being held.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the protest. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
The Extinction Rebellion (XR) movement has organized disruptive protests around the world since November 2018 to demand increased action to address 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.
