Event

The National Association of Fiscal Employees of Chile (ANEF) called for protests on Thursday, December 6, as they continue their strike. The main demonstration is set to be held at 11:00 (local time) at the Plaza de la Constitución in Santiago. Other protests are possible in cities across the country. Localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely surrounding demonstrations. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.

Context

Public sector unions, including ANEF, held three days of strikes and protests beginning November 26. The majority of protests and strikes ended on November 28 following negotiations with the government, though ANEF did not agree to the terms.

On November 28, riot police dispersed labor protesters with water cannons.

Advice

Individuals in Chile, particularly Santiago, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid protests as a precaution, and anticipate public demonstrations, transportation disruptions, and a heightened security presence.
