An anti-government protest is scheduled for Tuesday, July 9, to oppose President Evo Morales' interest in seeking re-election, in Santa Cruz. Details regarding the location are yet to be confirmed but will likely occur around government buildings. Protests should be expected in other urban centers across Bolivia.
Associated transportation and commercial disruptions and a heightened security presence are very likely near all protests. Clashes between demonstrators and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Santa Cruz are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstration areas as a precaution, anticipate transportation and business disruptions and a heightened security presence, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
