Argentine citizens held nationwide anti-government protests on Thursday, October 10, to show opposition to President Mauricio Macri several days before the presidential election. Citizens in 20 provinces, including Buenos Aires, protested Macri's decision to end social programs, high cost of food, and poverty; among many other issues.
Related protests are likely to take place in the coming several days as the election draws closer.
Argentina is set to hold presidential elections on October 27. President Macri is running for a second term in this election.
Individuals in Argentina, though especially in Buenos Aires, are advised to monitor developments, avoid any protests and demonstrations, prepare for associated disruptions to transportation and business, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
