The US embassy in Bucharest issued a security message on Monday, August 10, warning of planned anti-government demonstrations in the capital. Demonstrators are expected to gather in and around Piata Victoriei from 17:00 (local time) on Monday. The protest marks the second anniversary of anti-corruption protests held in Bucharest and other cities on August 10 2018, which were aggressively dispersed by police. A large security presence is likely in the capital during Monday's demonstration and several roads around Piata Victoriei are expected to be closed.
Localized disruptions are likely around Piata Victoriei ahead of and during the protests.
Those in Romania are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized travel disruption, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
