Protests continue against high cost of living in Panamanian province

Protests continue against high cost of living in Panamanian province

Panama City, May 18 (Prensa Latina) Popular leaders of the Panamanian province of Colon said that they will maintain protests against the high cost of living and questioned the most recent meeting on the subject of the President of the Republic, Laurentino Cortizo.

In a message spread in social networks, one of the leaders of the Coalición por la Unidad por Colón and the Frente Amplio Colonense, Edgardo Voitier, denounced the maneuver used to try to confront in that meeting his guests and true representatives of the people.

He also indicated that they will not fall into such maneuvers nor question those who attended the meeting on behalf of the people. We will continue to demand concrete answers to the development of Colón, on the high cost of gasoline and the cost of living, he remarked.

The day before, Cortizo promised a new employment plan for the province of Colon, in his ninth day of strike, during a meeting at the Presidential Palace to which the main social leaders were absent.

After more than an hour of exchange, the President indicated without further details that in the next few days the Ministry of Labor and Labor Development (Mitradel) will announce an employment database for the people of Colon, which will begin with a training for those interested in applying for a job.

For tomorrow, Thursday, in solidarity with Colon and also to demand salary increases and against massive layoffs and the high prices of fuel and the basic family basket, the main labor centers of the country called for a march to the Presidency of the Republic, where they will deliver the list of demands and will demand a national dialogue table.
