Activists are planning a protest march in San Francisco (California state) on Saturday, May 18, in solidarity with pro-Maduro demonstrators at the Venezuelan embassy in Washington (DC). The ANSWER coalition is organizing the protest from 12:00 to 14:00 (local time) at the Powell Street BART station in the Tenderloin neighborhood. Localized disruptions are possible, including crowds at public transportation stations and a heightened security presence.
Protesters in Washington (DC) have barricaded themselves inside the Embassy of Venezuela in support of President Nicolás Maduro in an attempt to prevent the embassy from being transferred to President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó. The US government, among other nations, has recognized Guaidó as the leader of Venezuela.
Individuals in San Francisco are advised to avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution and anticipate localized transportation disruptions and heightened security measures.
