Event

A curfew will be in place for the fourth consecutive night for the 10 million residents of Los Angeles County on Wednesday, June 3. The L.A. County Emergency Operations Center announced that Wednesday's curfew will be between 21:00 and 05:00 (local time). Those working for the media and other essential employees are exempt from the curfew. Previously, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in the city and county of Los Angeles on Saturday evening, May 30, and activated the National Guard to restore order and enforce the curfew. Despite the curfew, protesters gathered outside the mayor's residence in the Hancock Park neighborhood on Tuesday night, June 2, as peaceful protests continued.

Further protests and associated unrest are likely in the area in the near term.

Context

George Floyd died while being arrested by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. The four arresting police officers were subsequently fired, and one has since been charged with murder. Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters gathered on May 26 to denounce the death and actions of the police officers. Clashes ensued between protesters and riot police; with demonstrators throwing bricks and projectiles at police and police property, and police responding with tear gas and rubber bullets as they attempted to disperse the crowds. Protests have since spread to a number of cities across the US.

Advice

Individuals in Los Angeles and across metropolitan areas in the US are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
