Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Adana (Turkey), Planned Demonstration in Mersin

The U.S. Consulate in Adana informs U.S. citizens that a demonstration will take place in Mersin on Saturday, December 24 beginning at 12 noon. The demonstration is against recent terror attacks in Turkey and will begin at Tevfik Sirri Gur Stadium and culminate at Cumhuriyet Square. The U.S. Consulate reminds all U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. U.S. citizens should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
