Education and healthcare workers have called for a nationwide strike to take place on Thursday, May 30, and Friday, May 31. The workers have previously held strikes and demonstrations throughout May to denounce decrees aimed at restricting Honduran health and education sectors. Associated protest marches are planned for Thursday and Friday in Tegucigalpa. Previous protests have occurred near the Ministry of Health building, the National Pedagogical University Francisco Morazán, and Presidential Palace and have sometimes involved roadblocks and clashes with security forces. Disruptions to healthcare services are also possible during the strike.
Individuals in Honduras, particularly Tegucigalpa, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized transportation and business disruptions, long wait times for healthcare services, and a heightened security presence near possible protest sites.
