Anti-American Violence & Situational Awareness Notice

Warden Message – Worldwide Travel Alert

 

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates General in China are sharing the following Worldwide Travel Alert that was issued by the State Department on May 2, 2011 to all U.S. citizens for their information.  Please share this message with other U.S. citizens in your organizations or to other Americans you know.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The U.S. Department of State alerts U.S. citizens traveling and residing abroad to the enhanced potential for anti-American violence following recent counter-terrorism activity in Pakistan.  Given the uncertainty and volatility of the current situation, U.S. citizens in areas where recent events could cause anti-American violence are strongly urged to limit their travel outside of their homes and hotels and avoid mass gatherings and demonstrations.  U.S. citizens should stay current with media coverage of local events and be aware of their surroundings at all times.  This Travel Alert expires August 1, 2011.

 

U.S. Embassy operations in affected areas will continue to the extent possible under the constraints of any evolving security situation.  U.S. government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert.  These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public services to assess their security posture.  In those instances, U.S. Embassies and Consulates will make every effort to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens.  U.S. citizens abroad are urged to monitor the local news and maintain contact with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

 

Media coverage of local events may cause family and friends to become concerned for their loved ones traveling and residing abroad.  We urge U.S. citizens to keep in regular contact with family and friends.  U.S. citizens living or traveling abroad are encouraged to enroll in the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP),http://travel.state.gov/travel/tips/registration/registration_4789.... to receive the latest travel updates and information and to obtain updated information on travel and security issues.  U.S. citizens without Internet access may register directly with the appropriate U.S. Embassy or Consulate.  By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the U.S. Embassy or Consulate to contact them in case of emergency.

 

Travel information is also available at http://www.travel.state.gov/  Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or, for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444.

Agreed

It means due to taking out UBL, some Muslims around the world have vowed revenge and that American citizens living and traveling overseas should be more aware of their surroundings and to report anything suspicious.  I would rather get these messages, than none at all, even if it seems obvious.
