Demonstration Alert – U. S. Embassy Yaounde Cameroon

Location:  Douala

Event:  The Embassy informs U.S. citizens of the likelihood of a political rally in the area of Bepanda Stadium (aka Stade de la Réunification) on Saturday, November 9, 2019.  Since permission for this rally has been denied, there could be an increased law enforcement presence and possible violence.

Actions to Take:

  • Avoid the Bepanda Stadium and surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday, November 9.
  • Avoid large gatherings and demonstrations, as even peaceful demonstrations   may quickly turn violent.
  • Monitor local news stations.
  • Remain aware of your surroundings and keep a low profile.
  • Always carry proof of your legal presence in Cameroon, such as a U.S. passport with visa or a residency card.  Since Cameroon does not recognize dual        citizenship, U.S. citizens of Cameroonian descent should never attempt to use    a Cameroonian passport or identification card.
