There is much chatter around town and on social media concerning Monday, August 8 and potential protests/demonstrations/strikes. Due to this, the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) are deploying additional forces to strategic locations throughout Freetown on Monday. There have been no official demonstration requests submitted to the SLP and no specific locations have been identified for possible demonstrations.
If you observe a crowd gathering or find yourself near one, the safest course of action is to depart the area and find a safe location.
