The Colombian Federation of Education Workers (FECODE) is planning to hold nationwide demonstrations on Thursday, September 13. Union leaders have called for students, other workers, and government officials to support the protests. Demonstrations are expected to be held in major urban areas throughout the country. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are anticipated around all protest sites.


Teachers are demanding that the government reject educational reforms being debated in Congress. FECODE claims that the bill threatens job security, educational funding, and reduces resources from other school programs.


Individuals in Colombia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate transportation disruptions in the vicinity of protests.
