Social activists have called for a demonstration in Dakar on Friday, July 17, to denounce the government's perceived inaction in implementing reforms agreed in October 2018. Participants will meet at 15:00 (local time) at Place de l'Obelisque. Although the demonstration will likely pass peacefully, a heightened security presence is anticipated in the vicinity of the gathering.
Localized disruptions to transportation are to be expected in the vicinity of any demonstration site.
Individuals in Dakar are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the area, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, and adhere to all advice issued by the local authorities.
