Demonstrations to denounce the government's perceived attempts to impeach a prominent judge are slated to take place in several cities across Buenos Aires province on Thursday, March 21. Protesters are expected to rally at Plaza de Tribunales in Buenos Aires and at Plaza Castelli in Dolores from 19:00 (local time), with associated demonstrations in Mar del Plata and La Plata. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are likely near demonstration sites.
Protesters are rallying in support of Ramos Padilla, a prominent judge involved in the corruption investigations of former President Cristina Kirchner and other top officials. The current President Mauricio Macri's administration announced on March 15 that it opened proceedings to seek the impeachment of Padilla for "malfeasance" and other violations. Padilla is accused of illegally disclosing evidence to the public during a congressional hearing.
Individuals in the abovementioned cities are advised to monitor the situation, avoid demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
