Event

Anti-government demonstrations are set to take place in the capital Santiago and other urban centers on Friday, November 27, to demand President Sebastian Pinera's resignation and the release of political prisoners. In Santiago, participants will reportedly gather at 17:30 (local time) at the Centre Gabriela Mistral. Related events will likely take place in other cities, including Antofagasta, Coquimbo, and Valparaiso. A related demonstration on November 25 resulted in confrontations between protesters and security forces, as well as transport disruptions and acts of vandalism.

A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations and clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Those in Chile are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the protest sites as a precaution, anticipate delays to transport, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
