The Alliance for Democratic Forces (AFD) political opposition group, composed of 12 opposition parties and civil society groups, is planning a march in Abidjan on Saturday, June 17, to denounce the policies of President Alassane Ouattara. The march will reportedly start in Treichville district and end at Place des Martyrs (Adjamé district). Traffic disruptions and increased security measures are likely along the march route.


The opposition denounces what it sees as the failure of the state to address ongoing instability nationwide, including incidents of military mutiny, a crisis in the cacao and agribusiness sectors, and long-lasting civil servant strikes.


Individuals in Abidjan are advised to keep abreast of the situation and to avoid all public gatherings due to the risk of violence.
