Libya News Alert

Demonstrations against poor living conditions scheduled in Tripoli for September 4; avoid all gatherings as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/4/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/5/2020, 11:59 PM (Africa/Tripoli). COUNTRY/REGION Tripoli

Event

Demonstrations denouncing poor living conditions are scheduled to occur in Tripoli on Friday, September 4. Protesters are expected to gather at the People Hall in Hay al Andalus and Algeria Square from 17:00 (local time), before converging on Martyrs' Square. The demonstration has reportedly been organized by a group called the August 23 Movement. The protest will contravene the standing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) measures, which prohibit large social gatherings. Although the protest is intended to be peaceful, it is likely that security forces will attempt to bar the demonstration from moving to Martyrs' square with subsequent potential for clashes.

Further protests are likely to continue in the coming days. A heightened security presence with associated localized disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of gatherings.

Advice

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