Dozens were arrested on Saturday, November 7, in Belarus, during protests by medical workers in Minsk. The demonstrations were held to denounce violence against anti-government protesters in the country and to call for the country's authoritarian president to step down. At least 47 people were arrested during the demonstration on Saturday.
A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the protests. Further demonstrations should be expected in the near term.
Those in Belarus are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protest and demonstration locations as a precaution and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
