Demonstrators are planning to gather in central Madrid on Monday, September 21, to demand additional investment and resources for medical staff amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Protesters will gather outside the Ministry of Health on Calle de la Aduana; however, the start time for the protest remains unclear. Demonstrations are likely to remain peaceful.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest sites.
