Nationwide environmental protests are scheduled to take place on Friday, September 4, throughout urban centers in Switzerland. The demonstrations represent part one of the 'rise up for change' initiative, which has been designed by organizers to make changes and show awareness for climate change. Part two of the initiative is scheduled to take place on September 20.
Previous related demonstrations in January saw over 10,000 people attend the protest. Participants have been told to wear face masks in compliance with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) measures.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Those in Switzerland are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution.
