The Noo Lank civil society group has called for nationwide protests on Friday, January 10, to denounce an increase in electricity costs. The protest will also look to demand the release of an activist arrested on Friday, November 29, in a related protest. The exact locations for the protests remain unknown, although the main gatherings are expected in the capital Dakar.

A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected near any demonstration site. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.


Related protests have been held across the country throughout December.


Individuals in Dakar are advised to monitor developments of the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
