Mexico Alerte de sécurité

Teachers continue rail line blockades amid ongoing strike in Michoacán state January 24; heightened security presence and transportation and business disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 24/1/2019, 12h00 until 31/1/2019, 11h59 (America/Mexico_City). COUNTRY/REGION Michoacan state


Thousands of teachers staged demonstrations and erected barricades in Michoacán state on Thursday, January 24, demanding back wages. Teachers in Morelia reportedly staged a protest inside the municipal palace, with hundreds more gathered in the city center, while demonstrators in Lázaro Cárdenas blocked roads and railroad tracks to prevent cargo shipments. A heightened security presence, along with associated traffic disruptions, are likely around any demonstration site.


Teachers in Michoacán state launched a "indefinite rail blockade" in several cities on January 14 to call on the local government to fulfill payments of back wages. Officials estimate that at least 145 trains, or 8000 containers, of goods and fuel have been stuck at departure points since the protests began.  


Individuals in Michoacán state are advised to follow all instructions issued by local authorities, avoid all protests, budget extra time to reach their destinations, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
