Planned Public Demonstrations (Sept 24-30) (September 23, 2015)

The Embassy regularly posts Demonstration Notices on our website, containing basic information about strikes, protests, or other public gatherings planned throughout Peru. This list of Demonstration Notices has been updated. Please consult the list to see whether events may be planned in or near an area where you are traveling. While traveling in Peru, you may also request updates on local conditions by contacting iPeru at 01-574-8000 or iperu@promperu.gob.pe.

Demonstrations in Peru are often peaceful, but can quickly escalate into violent confrontations. U.S. citizens are advised to avoid large crowds and demonstrations and are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance, maintain awareness of local events and their surroundings, and take the appropriate steps to bolster their personal security.  It is illegal in Peru for foreigners to participate in demonstrations. In the past, some U.S. citizens who have been caught up in political demonstrations in Peru have been detained and expelled from the country.
