While Presidenta Laura Chinchilla readies for her civic act celebrating Juan Santamaría Day in Alajuela, the residents of the province are a protest and to “give her the cold shoulder”.


The residents of Alajuela are angered over the concession award of the San José – San Ramón road to the Brazilian company, OAS, and the amount of the tolls that will be part of the reconditioned road.

“We will give the Presidenta the cold shoulder, the same she has given us over the last three years”, said Paul Brenes, representing the residents of San Ramón.

Residents of villages and towns affected by the concession – and all against the project –  are being asked to come out en masse on Thursday to demonstrate.

The demonstration is being planned for the Parque Juan Santamaria, in Alajuela Centre, the same location of the Santamaria Day activities.

Organizers say the demonstrations will also take place in other centres across the province of Alajuela.
