Mass demonstration today in Acapulco, Mexico

A mass demonstration is scheduled for today, October 17, in Acapulco, beginning at 9:00 am at the street, Calzada Pie de la Cuesta (in front of Diario 17), and proceeding along the Avenue Costera Miguel Aleman.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico issued an advisory that the consular office will not be open to the public due to the expected traffic in the area, but will respond to requests for emergency assistance.

Sitata reminds travellers to minimize safety risk by avoiding public gatherings and demonstrations since even peaceful gatherings can become confrontational and violent. Depending upon the laws of individual countries, foreigners participating in another country's protests risk, arrest, detention, and deportation.
