Civil society groups have called on supporters to demonstrate in Dakar on Friday, August 14, to highlight alleged social injustices and perceived government inaction. Participants are expected to gather outside the Cheikh Anta Diop University campus and march to the Ministry of Culture. According to reports, the march has been banned by local authorities.
A heightened security presence and localized disruption should be anticipated in the vicinity of demonstration sites. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.
Those in Dakar are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the area, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, and adhere to all advice issued by the local authorities.
