We remind U.S. citizens that demonstrations and large public gatherings, even if they are intended to be peaceful, can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence.  U.S. citizens are urged to avoid demonstration areas and to exercise caution when in the vicinity of any demonstrations.  U.S. citizens should monitor the media coverage of local events and be aware of their surroundings at all times.
