A demonstration has been planned on Wednesday, October 14, in D-Chowk in Islamabad by the All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) to demand increases to salaries and pensions. The organization represents the interests of current and former government employees and has reportedly called for the protest to continue all day.
Localized disruptions to transport and business services in the area are possible. A heightened security presence is also likely and clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.
Those in Islamabad are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations and gatherings as a precaution, anticipate associated disruptions, and heed any directives issued by local authorities.
