Additional protests are likely in towns and cities nationwide from November 20-21. Attendance will vary by location but could be in the thousands at larger gatherings.

Additional police will likely deploy to monitor all gatherings. Large numbers of people and associated security measures will likely prompt localized transport disruptions; public transport in the surrounding area may be canceled or diverted. The demonstrations are likely to proceed peacefully, though isolated clashes between police and activists cannot be ruled out. It’s recommended to have an alternative route planned and have extra time built into your schedule for unexpected delays.
