Message for U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations in The Hague on Friday, January 27, 2017- Friday, May, 26, 2017

The Dutch Police have informed the U.S. Embassy that the Cameroonian diaspora is planning for demonstrations to occur every Friday beginning on January 27, 2017, until on or about May 26, 2017. They plan to march from Raad Van State to the U.S. Embassy and back from 13:00 – 15:00 hours each Friday.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
