New Zealand Embassy Brasilia, Brazil
There have been protests in a number of cities across Brazil in the past week, including in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia.
Protest activity continues to be planned. The demonstrations, which have coincided with Brazil's hosting of the FIFA Confederations Cup, can turn violent with little or no warning. We recommend New Zealanders in Brazil avoid all demonstrations, protests and rallies. If you are in an area affected by demonstrations or violence, you should leave the immediate vicinity and follow any instructions issues by the local authorities.
