A pro-choice protest is expected to be held in Warsaw on Wednesday, November 18, to denounce a decision by Poland's constitutional tribunal which deemed abortions due to fetal defects unconstitutional. Participants of the demonstration will reportedly gather outside the Parliament building from 18:00 (local time). The demonstration is likely to be well attended. Further protests are likely throughout Poland over the near term.
A heightened police presence is expected around protest sites, with disruptions to transportation and business likely.
Those in Warsaw are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
