Protests organised by students' parents are expected to take place in Tunis and other urban centers on Thursday, January 24. In Tunis, parents are expected to stage a sit-in protest in front of the Municipal Theatre, starting at 12:30 (local time). Related demonstrations are expected at main squares in other urban centers. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of any demonstration.
Parents are denouncing an ongoing strike by teachers from the National Federation of Secondary Education demanding better wages and work conditions.
Individuals in Tunisia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of potential violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
