Vox, a far-right party in Catalonia, is planning a political rally in Barcelona at 12:00 (local time) on Saturday, March 22. The demonstration is being held to officially present Ignacio Garriga as their candidate for the Congress of Deputies, the lower house of the Spanish legislature. The rally will take place on Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, near Plaça d'Espanya between Torres Venecianes and Font Màgica de Montjuïc. Counterprotests are possible near the rally or in other areas of the city. A heightened security presence is also possible along with localized disruptions and increased congestion on public transportation.
Individuals in Barcelona are advised to anticipate a heightened security presence, localized disruptions, and increased congestion on public transportation, and avoid all political demonstrations as a precaution.
