December 16, 2010
The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa informs U.S. citizens residing in or
visiting Honduras that about 500 demonstrators are currently blocking
traffic on Boulevard Miraflores near Plaza Miraflores in Tegucigalpa.
Even demonstrations that are meant to be peaceful can become violent and unpredictable. You should avoid them if at all possible. Since the timing and routes of marches and demonstrations are always subject to change, U.S. citizens should monitor local media sources and the Embassy's website for new developments.
If you are going to live in or visit Honduras, please take the time to tell our Embassy about your trip. If you sign up, we can keep you up to date with important safety and security announcements. We can also help your friends and family get in touch with you in an emergency. Here's the link to the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program: https://travelregistration.state.gov
