In a tense post municipal election context, Budd’s Guinea office advises that the general teacher’s strike which started today (12 February 2018) could potentially lead to further violence and rioting in Conakry.

Pupils were sent home from school this morning and in some areas, road blocks of burning tyres have been set up.  Police have been dispersing demonstrators, some of whom are said to be young people protesting at school closures.

Budd Guinea recommends that crew members avoid leaving their vessels if at all possible for the time being.
