Colombian students have called for a nationwide protest to demand quality education on Thursday, October 10. Students state they look to defend the interests of public education, looking to call on the government to fulfill its 2018 budget promises. Protests are principally expected in Bogota, though may also take place in other urban centers across the country. Though details were not immediately available, protests should be expected in the vicinity of universities and possibly near the Education Secretary.
Protests are expected to take place amid a heightened security presence. Associated transportation disruptions are also likely.
Individuals in Colombia, and especially in Bogota, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate associated transportation disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.
