The National Association of Secondary Education Teachers (APSE) announced a series of weekly strikes beginning on Thursday, June 6, to denounce the government's proposed socioeconomic reforms. Participants will stage a protest march in central San José on Thursday beginning at 09:00 (local time). Further work stoppages are scheduled to take place on Friday, June 7, Tuesday, June 11, Tuesday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 25. Associated demonstrations are likely during the industrial actions over the coming weeks.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected around all protest sites.
Individuals in Costa Rica, particularly those in the capital San José, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
