A demonstration is scheduled to take place in Montevideo on Wednesday, October 14. The protest has been organized by activists associated with the Organized Families of Public Schools organization and is being held to demand that students be allowed to go back to school full time. Currently, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, schools have limited the number of children and the number of hours per week that students are to attend school. Participants of the demonstration are scheduled to gather at 17:15 (local time) at the Plaza Jose Pedro Varela.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest.
Those in Montevideo are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
