According to local media outlets, the Ecuadorian National Teachers' Network union will hold a second day of protests in Quito on Friday, May 22. The participants plan to rally as of 09:00 (local time) at Parque Infantil in the Esmeraldas neighborhood against a recent decision by the Ministry of Education to reduce one hour to the working day.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around all associated protests. Associated protests remain possible in the coming days.
Individuals in Ecuador, particularly in Quito, are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, and obey instructions issued by local authorities.
