Banana producers and exporters in Bolivia set to block the border crossing with Argentina

Protesters in Yacuiba, Bolivia, are set to block the border crossing with Argentina on November 14, starting from 18:00.

The demonstration, organized by banana producers and exporters, aims to disrupt National Route 9 and the Professor Salvador Mazza International Bridge until Argentinian importers settle their debts. The blockade is expected to cause substantial disruptions to cross-border transport, and police presence is likely to monitor the situation.

Clashes between protesters and security forces may occur, especially if authorities attempt to forcibly disperse the demonstration and reopen the border crossing. Travelers and businesses relying on this route should anticipate delays and potential travel difficulties. Stay updated on local developments and adhere to any official directives or security measures.
