Argentina News Alert

A rally in support of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to be held in Buenos Aires on February 5; localized traffic disruptions possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 2/5/2019, 12:00 AM until 2/5/2019, 11:59 PM (America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires). COUNTRY/REGION Buenos Aires

Event

Various civil society groups are planning to hold a march in support of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, February 5. The demonstration will start at 17:00 (local time) at the University of Buenos Aires School of Law in Recoleta. Protesters are then expected to move towards the US Embassy. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around the rally.

Context

Maduro has been under international pressure since his inauguration to a second term as president on January 10 following last year's contested election, prompting the National Assembly to declare a national emergency. Many foreign governments, including the US, Canada, and Brazil, among others, have since recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the interim head of state.

Advice

Individuals in Buenos Aires are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized transportation disruptions around protest sites, and to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
