Edgardo Voitier and Anacleto Ceballos, leaders of both institutions that are leading protests against the legislation, said that the Twitter account is not the Official Gazette or the way to run a country, during a meeting at the Chamber of Commerce with mediator Bishop Aguilar Audilio.

Colon entered its seventh day today in protests and total paralysis of activities, in a very busy day because concentrations are held early in many parts of the city that remains militarized and prepares the funeral of child Joshua Betancourt, first fatality of the conflict .

Balbina Herrera, of the Democratic Revolutionary Party, said he will remain being null because people do not want to offer him anything very helpful enough, but finishing to remove Law 72 allowing the sale of the ZLC.
