Event

Individuals from the Green March and Rebel of Juan Hubieres groups are slated to protest on Sunday, July 14, against rising fuel prices in Santiago. The protest will take place at the Monumento de Santiago as of 09:00 (local time).

Advice

Individuals in Santiago are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow ample travel time, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
