Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Lome (Togo), ANC March on May 27

The U.S. Embassy has received information that the Alliance Nationale Pour le Changement, or ANC, has announced plans to have a peaceful march on May 27 starting around 2:00 p.m. in the area of Kodjindji, southeast of the Be market. Traffic may be impacted in all areas of Be.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
