The Honduran Medical Association (CMH) is calling for an indefinite nationwide strike from Friday, April 26 at 7:00 (local time) against decrees aimed at restructuring the health and education sectors, which were approved by the National Congress on Thursday, April 25. The work stoppage will likely affect health and education services as protestors oppose the privatization of both sectors. Associated demonstrations are likely across the country in the coming hours and days. A heightened security presence and widespread traffic disruptions are expected near any demonstrations.
Individuals in Honduras, particularly in Tegucipalpa, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, adhere to instructions by local authorities, and anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions.
