COSTA RICA NEWS – Now that the World Cup games is over for Costa Rica, it’s time to get back to business, the business of demonstrations and protests.

A scene from a few years back when porteadores constantly protested in the streets. It's been three years since the last.
A scene from a few years back when porteadores constantly protested in the streets. It’s been three years since the last.

This Monday morning, in many parts of the country, porteadores (gipsy cab drivers) plan to apply “tortuguimso” (slow downs) and “bloqueos” (road blocks) in protest.

This will be first time in almost three years since the porteadores took to the streets in protest. German Lobo, head of the Cámara de Porteadores (the porteadores ), said the protests are in conjuction with the expiry of permits for the porteadores, who face fines if they continue to offer their taxi services.

Three years ago, the Chinchilla administration faced the porteadores who demanded the ability to work without incurring penalties, that included the confiscation of their vehicles. The Chinchilla administration enacted a special law, with the creation of rules and conditions to follow. The “reglamento” was never enacted.

Lobo says it has been difficult to talk to the new government.

According to Lobo, some 3.700 porteadores are expected to take part in the protests today.
