Spain Alerte de sécurité

Catalan independence protesters block highway linking Spain and France on November 12; transportation disruptions ongoing

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/11/2019, 12h00 until 14/11/2019, 11h59 (Europe/Madrid). COUNTRY/REGION AP-7, La Junquera

Event

As of Tuesday, November 12, Catalan independence protesters continue to block the AP-7 linking Catalonia and France in La Junquera for the second consecutive day, prompting French authorities to close the A9 highway linking France and Catalonia, in Narbonne. Consequently, severe transportation disruptions have been reported in the area since Monday, November 11, amid a heightened security presence. French and Spanish forces reportedly fired tear gas at protesters to clear the highways.

Blockades are likely to remain in place until Wednesday, October 13, as protesters initially called for a traffic blockade at the border to end on Wednesday night (local time). Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely to continue in the vicinity of the protests. Clashes between security forces and protesters are likely.

Advice

Individuals traveling via the AP-7 and A9 highways between Spain and France are advised to plan alternative itineraries, allow ample travel time, avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor developments to the situation, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
