Demonstrations are scheduled for Monday, August 17, to protest against new political reforms and corruption in Argentina. Organizers have announced that protesters will gather at 16:00 (local time) in the Buenos Aires' Obelisk square, and other towns and cities in the country. Although the protests have been organized via social media and not formally supported or promoted by political parties, certain politicians are expected to attend and support the rally.
A heightened security presence is to be anticipated in the vicinity of any protest site, along with disruptions to overland travel.
Those in Argentina are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid all protests or demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
