Civil society groups and labor unions have called for a march in Ouagadougou against foreign military presence and terrorism on Saturday, October 12. Participants plan to gather at 08:00 (local time) at the Bourse du Travail, but organizers did not immediately announce a route. The city's mayor had banned initial plans to gather at the Place de la Nation.
A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected along the march route.
Individuals in Ougadougou are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all political demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and refrain from discussing political topics in public or on social media.
