Major changes in social security to be demanded in Panama


Major changes in social security to be demanded in Panama

Panama, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Social organizations in Panama will demonstrate on Tuesday in front of the headquarters of the Social Security Fund (CSS), in this capital, to call for transformations and the right to a dignified life.

According to Jorge Guzman, spokesman for the Pueblo Unido por la Vida (United People for Life) alliance, in view of the boycott of the second phase of dialogue by the Government and private business people who are pressuring the Catholic Church, which is acting as a facilitator, there is no other alternative but to return to the streets.

People have the most legitimate right to protest, especially at this time when the CSS is going through a crisis of resources and medicines and its Board of Directors intends to reform the law with an increase in contributions and a raise in the retirement age.

Guzman told Prensa Latina that the talks held in July in the central province of Cocle were the result of demonstrations all over the country by different popular sectors, a scenario that could be resumed to defend justice and social equality.

We call on the people and organizations to remain on the alert and militant in defense of the Social Security Fund against acts of corruption and repression as a consequence of the Government’s refusal to talk, a statement from the group said.
