In Latin America, the perception of humanitarian intervention is quiet negative. There is a medium risk level of repression, the potential consequences being from expulsion to detention by military forces. To mitigate this, low profile is required (visibility etc.)
To mitigate the possibility of crime in urban and rural areas, in addition to the economic crisis , there is certain level of security to respect:
– Movement restrictions (from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
– Curfew from 10:00 p.m.
– For road trips, convoy movement and movement tracking.
– Confinement in case of protests and blackouts
– Identification of prohibited areas
Currently, the country is also facing several power cuts that could lead to additional restrictions on movement.
