Truck drivers have threatened to launch an indefinite nationwide strike on Monday, May 13, to demand a reduction in gasoline and diesel fuel prices. The National Confederation of Independent Carriers (CNTA) indicated it has not called for a strike and any demonstrations or work stoppages would be considered unsanctioned.
Associated demonstrations are possible nationwide, including roadblocks and rallies, should the industrial action proceed as planned.
Individuals in Brazil are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution and budget extra time to reach their destinations.
