Message for U.S. Citizens: Citizens Advised to Avoid Area Around Parliament Through Friday, September 17, 2021.
Samoa’s Parliament is scheduled to convene throughout this week and there may be associated marches or demonstrations. U.S. citizens in Samoa are advised to avoid the area around Parliament House through September 17.
Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. U.S. citizens in Samoa should avoid areas where demonstrations are taking place and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations. We recommend that U.S. citizens monitor local media for updates and remain aware of your surroundings.
