"In view of actual and / or imminent threats posed by some groups, we are suspending classes at all levels in Metro Manila effective today, March 20, to safeguard the safety of students," Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.

Meanwhile, for those outside Metro Manila, the government leave the decision to suspend classes to the sound discretion of local government units (LGUs).

The President has instructed that he will suspend classes even with the slightest threat of a strike to ensure the protection and well-being of students.

"We reiterate that the government remains steadfast to modernize our public utility vehicles and will not be bullied or held hostage by some transport groups," Roque added.
