On Wednesday, September 23, Catalonian junior doctors blocked Via Laietana in Barcelona during protests for the third consecutive day amid an ongoing strike over salary demands and training improvements. The protest followed failed talks with the Catalan Institute of Health to try and resolve the issues on Wednesday.
The junior doctors have vowed to continue to strike until their demands are met and further protests are expected in the coming days. A heightened security presence and localized transport disruption is expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Those in Barcelona are advised to monitor developments, avoid demonstrations and political gatherings as a precaution, anticipate possible disruptions to transport, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
