    On January 22, President-elect Luis Lacalle Pou issued a draft bill declaring demonstrations held in public spaces affecting freedom of movement to be illegal. If the bill is approved, the Government may also restrict strike action, if those striking prevent others from working and managers or owners from accessing company premises. The bill, which would affect people’s freedom to assemble and strike, is expected to enter Congress in March and has to be treated within 90 days.
