Teacher unions have called for a strike and associated nationwide demonstrations on Tuesday, February 26 and Wednesday, February 27. Demonstrators are expected to stage sit-in protests at schools and education ministry buildings throughout Tuesday and Wednesday across the country, notably in Laghouat, Blida, Batna and Relizane regions. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated near any demonstration sites.
Teachers are demanding a revision of the teacher status, a change to the social work management, as well as the freedom of trade union exercise. The movement is being organized after negotiations between union officials and government representatives remained at a stalemate.
Individuals in Algeria are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all related demonstrations and gatherings as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
