Anti-government protesters are scheduled to gather across the country on Monday, October 12, to promote a series of demands including the resumption of classroom education and that the government address the economic consequences of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Demonstrators intend to gather at the Obelisk on Avenida 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires from 17:00 (local time) in addition to a number of unspecified towns.
A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Individuals in Buenos Aires and other major urban centers are advised to closely monitor the situation, avoid all large public gatherings, prepare for disruptions to transportation and business in areas affected by the demonstration, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
