“I too am opposed (…) to the neo-liberal model that has governed us for some time. For the first time agree with the unions left,” said Guevara.

During the movement, some streets such as Avenida Segunda were temporarily closed off Friday morning. The same with the street in front of the Legislative Assembly, where, while inside a new Legislative Board was being elected for the 2015-2106 session.

Many drivers in the downtown area of San Jose were caught by surprise by the tremendous traffic congestion caused by the road closures.
