The Council of Patriots (COP) group plans to hold a demonstration in Monrovia on Monday, December 30, calling for the resignation of top government officials and demanding economic reform. The independent Council of Patriots (ICOP) announced that it will hold a counter protest in Monrovia on December 30, calling the planned COP protest "unconstitutional."
A heightened security presence and associated business and transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations. Clashes between protesters cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Monrovia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation and business disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
