TIMEFRAME expected from 10/1/2020, 12:00 AM until 10/3/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Warsaw). COUNTRY/REGION Warsaw

Event

Coal miners are set to gather in Warsaw on Friday, October 2, to denounce alleged EU-led plans to reduce public investment in the sector. Participants plan to march from Nowogrodzka to the Chancellery, although the timing of the rally has yet to be announced. A large police presence is likely along the march route amid ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19)-related restrictions on gatherings.

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are expected near any demonstration sites, and clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Those in Warsaw are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
