U.S. Embassy in Panama

Security Message for U.S. Citizens

January 20, 2017

 

The U.S. Embassy in Panama City informs U.S. citizens that it has received a report of at least one planned demonstration on January 20, 2017 in Panama City related to the Inauguration.  One demonstration is scheduled to begin 10:00a.m. in Parque Belisario Porras.  All U.S. citizens are reminded to remain diligent in your personal security. 

 

U.S. Citizens should plan their travel accordingly and avoid all confrontations.  Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.  Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates.  Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.
