QCOSTARICA – The May 1 march of the public sector unions through the streets of downtown San José had its own slogan: a strong opposition to neoliberalism.

On Friday the voices of different unions joined forces.

Participating in the May 1 “Día Internacional de las y los Trabajadores: march were the SEC, APSE, ANEP unions, as well as the Frente Amplio party and many others.

The march aimed to protest against neoliberal threats that will lead people to extreme poverty, according to Ana Doris Gonzalez, president of the APSE.


Some legislators support the ideology, sus as in the case of former presidential candidate, Oto Guevara, of the Movimiento Libertario.

“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.
