Youth Protest Scheduled in Angola Despite Police Warning

An unauthorized youth demonstration [pt] called by the Angolan Revolutionary Movement (Movimento Revolucionario Angolana) is planned for this afternoon, September 19, 2013, in the capital city of Angola, Luanda. A few hours before the demonstration is expected to begin, Mozambican journalist from BBC Africa Zenaida Machado (@zenaidamz) wrote on Twitter:

Machado quotes a statement by the Spokesman of National Police, Aristófanes dos Santos, broadcast on national television TPA last night:

She also recalls Amnesty International's recent statements urging the Angolan authorities not to suppress the upcoming demonstration. The human rights organization is concerned “that like previous protests, Thursday will see unwarranted force used against the protesters”.
