Security Messages and Demonstration Notices
 

Tuesday, 25 August 2015: (1100-1200hrs)

Planned peaceful demonstration at U.S. Embassy, Bucharest:

On Tuesday, 25 August 2015, at 1100hrs, a planned demonstration by Selo Nael (Syrian Activist), will take place at U.S. Embassy, Bucharest. This demonstration is expected to be peaceful and cooperative with law enforcement authorities.

Approximately 20 supporters will utilize banners and a loud speaker to protest the current situation in Syria, and the ‘lack of U.S. actions’. Demonstration organizers will also present a written statement to an embassy officer at the main CAC.

Romanian law enforcement entities are aware of the planned demonstration, and will take appropriate security measures. Prior demonstrations organized by Nael have been peaceful, cooperative and uneventful. Media coverage of this event, (although possible) is highly unlikely.

It is possible, but not expected, that normal pedestrian and vehicular traffic could be affected.  Even demonstrations that are meant to be peaceful can become violent and unpredictable and you should avoid them if at all possible and remain alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
