Teachers' unions have called for a nationwide 72-hour strike from Tuesday, November 12, through Thursday, November 14, in demands for unfulfilled contractual promises by the Ministry of Education. This includes a salary increase that has accumulated to 220 percent due to the ongoing delay. A union representative indicated that if no response is given over the three days, teaches will likely extend their strike. Though no precise details were immediately available, protests are to be expected on main avenues in urban centers, especially so in Caracas. Protests are also possible outside the Ministry of Education and near schools and universities. This mobilization follows a 48-hour strike in October for related grievances.

Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are to be expected near all protests.


Individuals in Venezuela are advised to monitor developments to the situation, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, avoid all public gatherings due to the risk of violence and arrest, and anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence.

The security situation in Venezuela remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
