Due to no government response, university professors in Argentina are to continue their strike on Friday, September 27, to continue their demands for salary raises on the grounds of decreased purchasing power due to inflation. Participants in Buenos Aires are expected to gather at 10:00 (local time) at an unspecified location, with the aim of marching to the Ministry of Education. Related protests are possible in other urban centers.
Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are expected in the vicinity of all protests.
Professors held a 24-hour strike on September 25 to protest the same issue.
Individuals in Argentina, and especially in Buenos Aires, are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow ample travel time, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
