On Sunday, July 28, protests and a concert are organized in San Juan at the Plaza de Armas starting at 10:00 and is expected to last most of the day. Protests may continue into the night and may lead to La Fortaleza.
Similar protests related to the ongoing crisis are likely throughout Puerto Rico, and particularly in San Juan, in the coming several days and weeks.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions should be expected surrounding all the aforementioned protests. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out, particularly in San Juan.
Similar protests demanding the resignation of Governor Rosselló have been held throughout Puerto Rico since July 13. The protests were called following a scandal involving hundreds of pages of leaked texts between Rosselló and his cabinet members containing misogynistic and homophobic language Despite admitting to writing the messages, Rosselló has refused to resign.
The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has also implicated members of Rosselló's cabinet in fraud, conspiracy, and other corruption-related investigations.
Individuals in San Juan are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
