Event

The Coordination des étudiants de Saint-Louis (CESL) student union has started a four-days protest movement in Saint-Louis on Wednesday, April 10. On the morning (local time) of April 10, protestors blocked the N2 national highway for several hours and clashed with the police, who responded with tear gas. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are likely through April 14. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.

Context

The CESL has organized various protests and strikes in Saint-Louis since May 15, 2018. They have been calling for a transparent investigation into the death of a student protester in May 2018, who was killed during clashes with security forces near the Gaston Berger University in Saint-Louis. Protester are also calling for better working conditions.

Advice

Individuals in Saint-Louis are advised to remain vigilant, monitor the situation via local media, and avoid any form of public demonstration or public gathering due to the risk of violence.
