Planned protests across Brazil on March 13 and 15, 2015

The U.S. Embassy in Brasilia has issued a notice of large demonstrations across Brazil on March 13 and 15, 2015. Reports indicate that most cities in Brazil will see protests in the Brazilian states. For March 13, protests are planned for Brasilia and São Paulo. On March 15, protests are planned for cities in almost all states of Brazil.

The protests are expected to be peaceful, however, minimize safety risk by avoiding all large gatherings or protests since these situations can escalate quickly and unexpectedly and become violent.
