Event

A protest march is scheduled to take place in Minsk on Sunday, November 1. The demonstration is being held to call for the resignation of President Alexander Lukashenko. Participants of the demonstration are scheduled to gather at approximately 14:00 (local time) at Park Chelyuskintsev before marching to Kurapaty via Independence Avenue. Associated protests are likely in urban centers nationwide.

A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the demonstration.

Context 

Protests have been taking place throughout Belarus since Lukashenko was declared the winner of the country's August 9 presidential election in a result which opposition groups denounced as fraudulent. The large-scale protests and increased political tensions have seen security forces blocking access to a number of cities as clashes with protesters were reported. Security forces have deployed tear gas, rubber bullets, water cannons, batons, and stun grenades in attempts to disperse crowds.

Advice

Those scheduled to travel to Belarus should monitor developments regarding the increased border restrictions and review their travel itineraries accordingly. Travelers in the country should avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, and refrain from discussing politically sensitive topics in public or on social media.
