For the third consecutive year, motorcyclists will take to the streets to protest the increase in the Marchamo, the annual circulation permit.

The mass protest is scheduled for Monday, with the focus of the protest at 11am in front of the Instituto Nacional de Seguro (INS) central building in downtown San José.

The Comité Cívico de Motociclistas and la Asociación Nacional de Empleados Públicos y Privados will be asking the INS to roll back the cost of the mandatory insurance portion of the Marchamo.

For Rafael Vargas, head of one of Costa Rica’s largest workers unions, the ANEP, there shouldn’t be any increase this year given the INS posted a profit.

Expected to joining the protest are agricultural workers and Cartago taxis, two groups also affected by the higher Marchamo cost.

The INS is the state insurance agency that provides the mandatory insurance coverage and plays the role of collector for the other agencies, such as the Finance ministry in the collection of property taxes, among others.
