The day before the National Union of Workers and Transport Workers ordered the closure of urban transport trips in the capital from 7:00 p.m. local time.

It was a sign of compliance with the cease of activities that the Plenario Intersindical de Trabajadores-Convención Nacional de Trabajadores (PIT-CNT) proposed under the slogan En contra del modelo de la desigualdad (Against the model of inequality).

The protest is also aimed at what they denounce as wage cuts, high costs, the projected social security reform, in defense of public enterprises and more budget for education, among other demands.

The call for the strike was supported and relaunched by the Intersocial group, which brings together social movements, including university students, teachers’ organizations, retirees and pensioners, among others.

There will be a partial shutdown of hospitals and medical centers, although on-call personnel will maintain services, according to the announcements here.

Public schools and high schools will close their doors, amid claims against the proposed governmental educational reform, and banking services will also be suspended.

The day is expected to be a peaceful one without mass events, preceded by little coverage by the country’s main media.
