Today Thursday could be another day of vehicular chaos on the country’s roads, this time the porteadores (informal taxis) taking to the streets in protest.

Organizers say the protest will be felt in more than 50 locations throughout the country, as the porteadores demand the government fully implement the law created for the porteo.

The protesters allege the lack of formalization for the permits and will use action to raise their voice agains the recent increases in fuel prices.
