Protest connected to an indefinite strike against COVID-19-related measures, such as a health pass, and socio-economic issues, are likely to continue in Guadeloupe through early February. Multiple protests have occurred in recent days in Les Abymes, Pointe-a-Pitre, Sainte Rose, Goyave, and Riviere des Peres in Basse Terre. Protesters have often blocked roads with burning debris.
Clashes between protesters and security forces are possible, particularly if authorities attempt to disperse gatherings. Police have fired tear gas and used water hoses on demonstrators in previous protests. Protesters may attempt to close fuel stations on the island. Transport and business disruptions are likely near protest sites.
