Various activist groups and labor organizations are planning to hold caravan rallies in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, November 17. The rallies are being held to commemorate Dia de la Militancia, which marks the 48th anniversary of the return from exile of former President Juan Peron in 1972. They are also being held to show support for the present government of President Alberto Fernandez. Several marches and rallies will take place, including a march from the Ministry of Health and Social Development to Congress from 16:00 (local time). Participants will also march to the Obelisk from unspecified locations from 17:00 and rally outside Congress from 18:00.
Localized disruptions to transport are likely along march routes and a heightened security presence is expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations. Anti-government counter-demonstrations are possible and low-level clashes between rival groups and other crowd-related disturbances cannot be ruled out.
Those in Buenos Aires are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate localized disruptions to transport in the vicinity of demonstration sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
