Ireland News Alert

Various anti-government groups set to protest in Dublin on October 3; avoid all protests

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/2/2020, 12:00 AM until 10/4/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Dublin). COUNTRY/REGION Dublin

Event

Various anti-government groups are set to protest in Dublin on Saturday, October 3. Reports indicate that Yellow Vest activists intend to gather at the Custom House at 13:30 (local time) and march to Dublin Port, allegedly to disrupt operations. Further, supporters of Health Freedom Ireland are planning to gather at Custom House from 14:00 but march to the Upper House of the Irish Parliament (the "Dail") to protest the government's handling of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Current COVID-19 measures in place in Ireland restrict public gatherings, and therefore the protests may be broken up or dispersed by police. Localized disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the protests, along with a heightened security presence. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Those in Dublin are advised to monitor the situation, avoid associated demonstrations, anticipate overland travel disruptions, and heed instructions issued by local authorities.
