The Philippine Star - - NATION - – Edith Regalado, Jan­vic Ma­teo

Classes in all lev­els will be sus­pended in Davao City and San Fer­nando, Pam­panga dur­ing the trans­port strike on Mon­day.

“We fully re­spect the trans­port strike in Davao City. Let us take this op­por­tu­nity to ob­serve the streets with fewer jeep­neys and more buses as en­vi­sioned in the high-pri­or­ity bus sys­tem project for Dabawenyos,” Mayor Sara DuterteCar­pio said in a state­ment.

Car­pio said the city gov­ern­ment would de­ploy buses to ferry stranded com­muters.

She ap­pealed to pro­test­ers to prac­tice self-re­straint, say­ing crimes com­mit­ted dur­ing the strike would not be tol­er­ated.
