Demonstrators are blocking traffic in multiple areas of Cartagena on February 28th. Traffic disruptions along sections of Avenida Pedro de Heredia, the city’s main avenue, have been reported, especially between Bomba del Amparo and the India Catalina Monument. Most demonstrators have gathered around Bomba del Amparo; however, reports indicate that protests are also taking place in other areas of the city, including Rompoy de El Pozon, Terminal de Transportes, Bomba El Gallo, and Ronda Real. A few minor confrontations between police and protesters have taken place early February 28th.
Heightened security and localized business and transport disruptions are likely near all protest sites. Further confrontations between protesters and the security forces are possible if demonstrators are overly disruptive, ignore police orders to disperse or engage in acts of public violence.
