Health workers are slated to stage a demonstration in Caracas on Monday, June 10, to demand better working conditions and medical supplies and resources. Participants will reportedly rally at Plaza Caracas.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected on Monday. Clashes between security forces and demonstrators are also possible.
Venezuela is experiencing an ongoing crisis spurred by President Nicolás Maduro's 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. At least 50 foreign governments, including the US, Canada, and Brazil, among others, have since recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the interim head of state.
Individuals in Venezuela, particularly in Caracas, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all public demonstrations due to the risk of violence and arrest, refrain from discussing political topics in public or on social media, and adhere to instructions issued by their home governments.
The security situation in Venezuela remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
