The Union of Road Carriers of Senegal has threatened a nationwide strike on Monday, June 10, to denounce perceived road harassment by Senegalese authorities. No additional, specific details were immediately reported.
Heightened tensions and a heightened security presence are likely over the coming weeks. Traffic disruptions associated with the strike, as well as additional protests, are possible should the union fail to reach an agreement with authorities.
Individuals in Senegal are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
