Workers in the education and healthcare sectors have called for a nationwide strike to take place on Monday, May 20, to denounce decrees aimed at restructuring the health and education sectors, which were approved by the National Congress on Thursday, April 25. The work stoppage will likely affect health and education services as protestors oppose the privatization of both sectors. A related demonstration is expected to take place in Tegucigalpa, in front of the National Pedagogical University Francisco Morazan, starting from 09:00 (local time). A heightened security presence and widespread traffic disruptions are expected near the demonstration site.
Individuals in Honduras, particularly in Tegucigalpa, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, adhere to instructions by local authorities, and anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions.
