The Lebanese Democratic Women's Assembly (RDFL) is slated to hold a demonstration outside the Lebanese Parliament at Martyrs' Square in Beirut at 17:00 (local time) on Wednesday, July 31. Supporters are protesting the laws in Lebanon that govern personal status issues, such as marriage and divorce, which many feel discriminate against women. RDFL are calling for the adoption of civil law to guarantee equality and protection for women in these matters.
Localized disruptions, including a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, are possible.
Individuals in Beirut are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the vicinity of the protest, and anticipate a heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions.
