Administrators Admin_01 Posted December 16, 2015 Administrators Share Posted December 16, 2015 The U.S. Embassy in Panama City informs U.S. citizens that it has received a report of planned demonstrations in Panama City related to the anniversary of Operation Just Cause on December 20, 2015. One demonstration is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. in the traffic circle between Clayton and Albrook and continue to the U.S. Embassy. A second demonstration is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. on the Cinta Costera. 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. For up-to-date information on security, Americans traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department’s Internet web site at http://travel.state.gov. Further information on safety and security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays). We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Panama enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at www.Travel.State.Gov. STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. If you are a U.S. citizen in need of urgent assistance, the emergency number for the U.S. Embassy/Consulate is 317-5000. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
