The following is a list of ongoing civil unrest or ongoing protests that are taking place around the world. This list is for the sole purpose of identifying present-day civil unrest and protests and the death toll and number of protesters associated with each event. Note:

  • Fatality figures include/ both civilian and military/police deaths unless otherwise indicated.
  • Fatality totals may be underestimated or unavailable due to a lack of information. A figure with a plus sign indicates that at least that many people have died (e.g. 455+ indicates that at least 455 people have died) - the actual toll could be considerably higher.
  • Only states with ongoing protests or civil unrest are listed.
