The Federation of Educators of Colombia (FECODE), a union that represents over 300,000 teachers across Colombia, will hold a 24-hour strike on Thursday, February 14, to protest against the underfunding of public education, among other things. Associated demonstrations are expected to take place in major urban areas around the country, particularly in the capital Bogotá. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are anticipated around all protest sites. Low-level violence (clashes, vandalism) cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Colombia are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution and allow for additional time to reach their destinations.
