Turkey News Alert

Nationwide climate marches scheduled on November 29; heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/28/2019, 1:00 AM until 11/30/2019, 12:59 AM (Asia/Istanbul). COUNTRY/REGION Turkey

Event

Several climate activist associations have called for pro-environmental protests across Turkey on Friday, November 29, to denounce the commercial "Black Friday" retail event. In Istanbul, participants plan to gather at 12:00 (local time) outside the Bilnet Bahçeköy school, as well as outside the townhall, and at Bebek Park. Additional protests are expected across Turkey as thousands of participants are expected to attend, which are likely to prompt significant business and transportation disruptions.

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be anticipated around any demonstration.

Context

The protests are part of worldwide disruptive protests ongoing since 2018 to demand increased action to address climate change issues, and come ahead the COP25 climate conference to take place in Madrid between December 2-December 13.

Advice

Individuals in Turkey are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
