Event

A pro-choice protest is expected to be held in Warsaw on Monday, November 23, to denounce a decision by Poland's constitutional tribunal which deemed abortions due to fetal defects unconstitutional. Participants will reportedly hold a caravan protest at around 18:00 (local time), although the exact location of the event has yet to be announced. The demonstration is likely to be well attended. Further protests are likely throughout Poland over the near term.

A heightened police presence is expected around protest sites, with disruption to transportation and business likely.

Advice

Those in Warsaw are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
