The far-right Highwaymen group is slated to stage a rally in Little Rock (Arkansas) on Saturday, March 9. The demonstration is set to start at 12:00 (local time) outside the state capitol building to protest firearm restriction laws and abortion. Counter-demonstrations are also expected in the vicinity of the state capitol.

Context

Far-right demonstrations in the US have resulted in violent clashes between rival demonstrators and political supporters. Violence broke out at a Unite the Right rally organized by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville (Virginia) on August 12, 2017. One person was killed and at least another 19 injured when an assailant identified as a white supremacist intentionally drove a car into a group of counterprotesters.

Advice

Individuals in Little Rock are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
