Denmark News Alert

Demonstration planned outside US embassy in Copenhagen on July 22; localized disruption likely in near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/22/2020, 12:00 AM until 7/23/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Copenhagen). COUNTRY/REGION Copenhagen

Event

The US embassy in Copenhagen issued a demonstration alert on Wednesday, July 22, warning of a protest planned to be held outside the embassy. Demonstrators are expected to gather in front of the embassy in the Osterbro area of the city at around 16:30 (local time) before proceeding to Sankt Hans Torv square in the Norrebro neighborhood via Trianglen. The reason for the demonstration is currently unclear but it coincides with the visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the city and security is likely to be heightened in the vicinity of the embassy. Recent protests at the embassy have been linked to the Black Lives Matter movement and President Donald Trump's previous suggestions over the status of Greenland.

A heightened police presence and localized disruption are likely around the US embassy and Sankt Hans Torv square in the near term.

Advice

Those in Copenhagen are advised to monitor developments regarding future protests, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
