Activists plan to form a vehicular caravan in Guatemala City on Thursday, September 17, to protest against ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions. Participants are gathering in their cars to avoid breaching COVID-19 public gathering restrictions and plan to form a caravan from the Obelisco to the National Palace at 11:00 (local time).
Significant traffic disruptions are anticipated in the vicinity of the demonstration and a heightened security presence is to be expected in the area. Security forces are likely to clamp down on any breaches of COVID-19 restrictions and clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement cannot be ruled out.
Those in Guatemala City are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
