A public transportation strike is set to take place on Thursday, July 19, beginning at 08:00 (local time). Municipal bus drivers, taxi drivers, and motorcycle-taxi drivers will all take part. Associated protests and roadblocks, with the potential to trigger clashes between demonstrators and security forces, are possible throughout the country, both on highways and on city streets.
The strike is being held to demand increased fares and lower fuel prices.
Individuals in Honduras are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, never attempt to cross a roadblock without authorization, and be prepared for increased traffic congestion. More generally, individuals in Honduras are advised against using public transportation and inter-city buses for security reasons.
