Municipal workers affiliated with the Salvadoran Association of Municipal Workers (ASTRAM) have called for a protest in San Salvador on Wednesday, October 28, to demand delayed payments from the city's Mayor, Ernesto Muyshondt. Participants will reportedly march to the Ministry of Finance building from several locations. The event is likely to be well attended.
Although the protest is expected to pass peacefully, a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the march, and clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Those in San Salvador are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
