Commercial employees and teachers in Chile are slated to protest on Tuesday, July 9, in Santiago. Although the time and place for the protest were not immediately available, previous teacher' protests have taken place at Plaza Baquedano, also known as Plaza Italia. Teachers were protesting separately, though recently decided to join forces with commercial employees with similar grievances. Protests in other metropolitan areas are possible.
Further related protests are expected in the coming weeks.
Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely in the vicinity of the protests.
Teachers in Chile have been on strike since Monday, June 3, which has produced significant disruptions across the country. Their demands include bonuses being paid, increased security for educators, end double evaluations, and an increase in working hours.
Individuals in Chile are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
