Approximately 30,000 supporters of the Lega Nord party are expected to attend a demonstration in Milan on Saturday, May 18, for a political march and rally. Demonstrators will reportedly gather at Porta Venezia for a rally at 12:00 (local time) and subsequently march from Corso Venezia to Piazza Duomo via Piazza Oberdan, San Babila, Corso Matteotti, and Piazza della Scala between 15:00-19:00.
A second march organized by political opponents of the Lega Nord party is slated to take place on Saturday. Protesters will gather at Largo Cairoli at 14:00 and proceed to Giardini della Guastalla via Via Carducci, Colonne di San Lorenzo, and Univeristà Statale.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration sites. Clashes between the groups of political demonstrators and police cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Milan are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized business and transportation disruptions near protest sites, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
