Anti-racism demonstration to be held outside US embassy in Mexico City on June 5; localized disruptions likely

TIMEFRAME expected from 6/5/2020, 12:00 AM until 6/7/2020, 11:59 PM (America/Mexico_City). COUNTRY/REGION Mexico City

Event

A demonstration organised by anti-racism groups is scheduled to be held in Mexico City on Friday, June 5, in solidarity with protests in the US over the death in police custody of George Floyd. Demonstrators are expected to gather near the Insurgentes metro station at around 12:00 (local time) before marching to the US embassy via Paseo de la Reforma. The demonstration is intended to be peaceful. However, a similar protest in Guadalajara (Jalisco state) on Thursday, June 4, saw reports of vandalism and clashes between demonstrators and police.

The demonstration is likely to cause localized travel disruption. Further protests are likely in the near term. 

Advice

Those in Mexico City are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the risk of potential crowd disturbances, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
