Unionized workers at Brazil's state-controlled oil company Petrobras will launch a general strike on Saturday, October 26, after negotiations with the corporation failed to resolve ongoing disputes over pay. Some 17 oil worker unions are expected to participate in the strike movement.
A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of any protest.
Individuals in Brazil are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
