The leader also calls on the people to rise up, to take up arms and on the Fuerza Publica (National Police) to join ‘this revolutionary crusade’ that will soon be felt throughout the country.

“We have been tolerant, we have been peaceful, we have been always a people who love justice, but we are tired Mr. President, president of whom, of the traitors, the hypocrites, of the liars, because he is not our president, gentlemen, to all legislators, I say to you with respect, be with the people or leave because we are tired … To all Costa Ricans, it has not been easy to make this decision, but we have, we are tired, and the people have shown in different parts of the country that it won’t accept this any more.

“Costa Ricans, businessmen, you do not have to fear, corruption swept this country and we cannot continue in that same direction. To all Costa Rica, take up arms!,” said the leader of the group.
