A union representing health workers has called on members to demonstrate in urban centers nationwide on Wednesday, November 18, to call for better salaries and working conditions. The exact locations for the demonstrations have not been confirmed; however, the largest protest is expected to take place in Caracas outside health care centers and hospitals. Participants plan to gather between 09:00 and 12:00 (local time).
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions are possible in the vicinity of all demonstrations.
Individuals in Venezuela are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
