Some protesters have already begun the protest by marching from distant villages and cities through to Asunción, where they will gather on Thursday at Plaza Uruguaya. The time of the protest was not immediately available, though should be expected throughout most of the day. These marches are expected to prompt transportation disruptions on roads leading to Asuncion.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions should be expected around groups of marchers and the associated protest in Asuncion.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
