Event

Service disruptions on the Buenos Aires metro (subte) system are possible in the coming days and weeks. Workers are set to resume a series of protests to demand pay raises among high rates of inflation. The first of the protests is set to take place on Thursday, July 19, when turnstiles in stations along the line A will be opened from 19:00 to 21:00 (local time), allowing passengers to enter without paying. Similar actions are likely on other lines in the coming days. If the workers’ demands continue to go unmet, more disruptive protests, including strikes, are possible.

Context

Related protests and strikes were held in March and April.

Advice

Individuals in Buenos Aires are advised to keep abreast of the situation and avoid any associated street protests as a precaution.
