Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations in Adana, December 10, 2017

The U.S. Consulate in Adana informs U.S. citizens demonstrations are expected to take place at U.S. Consulate Adana and in the vicinity of Incirlik Air Force Base near Ataturk Caddesi in Adana over the weekend.  U.S. citizens should avoid these areas during the protests.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  We advise U.S. citizens to avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.  Please review your personal security plans, remain aware of your surroundings, and follow local law enforcement safety recommendations and local media for additional information.  We will provide updates as information comes available.

The U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Turkey asks U.S. citizens to contact family members who may be concerned about your welfare or whereabouts.  Review personal security plans, ensure communication connectivity, and remain aware of your surroundings.  Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.
