Activists plan to hold demonstrations in several cities across Argentina on Wednesday, November 4, to demand that the government makes abortions safe, legal, and free in the country. It is expected that the most well-attended demonstration will be held in the capital Buenos Aires, where protesters will gather from 17:00 (local time) to march from Plaza de Mayo to Congress. Protesters will also gather in the following cities:
• Cipolletti: Plaza de la Justicia at 18:00
• Lujan: Municipality building at 12:00
• Santa Rosa: Municipality building at 17:00
A heightened police presence and localized disruptions to transport are expected around the above locations.
Individuals in Argentina are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
