‘We can speed up and pass this law due to several days on strike and people need it,’ Cuellar, who is also the coordinator of the Interinstitutional Committee of Santa Cruz, said upon arrival at the governmental and legislative department.
He told reporters that he came as a rector and he kept his distance from radical binomial Governor Luis Fernando Camacho and Pro Santa Cruz Civic Committee President Romulo Calvo, who led the team that imposed the strike.
Friday marks 28 days of roadblocks, extortion, violent attacks on communities and police with clubs, sharp and cutting weapons, firecrackers, and high-powered pyrotechnics, and looting and burning of headquarters of social organizations.
The constitutional rights of millions of Santa Cruz citizens to work, move freely, and against acts of racial discrimination have been violated as a consequence of the four weeks of strikes.
Official figures show the loss of more than one billion dollars, four deaths, hundreds of injured, a complaint for the gang rape of a minor, and the bankruptcy of many business people.
