Leaders of protest groups criticized for not contributing proposals to the problem

(QCOSTARICA) Today, Wednesday, September 30, is a day to stay at home if you can. No, not because of some health measure, rather to the protests that have already begun this morning in different points of the country.

This morning in Mora (Cuidad Colon)

In the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM), targets are major routes such as the Ruta 27 and the Autopista General Cañas. Outside the GAM, reports are coming in of groups gathering to block roads in Caldera, Puntarenas and Liberia, Guanacaste.

What are the protests all about?

The protests are a measure of pressure so that the legislature does not approve more taxes, as part of the Government’s proposal to negotiate a US$1.750 billion dollar loan with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

This morning’s concentration in downtown San Jose begins in front of the Minnisterioi de Hacienda building on Avenida 2

The protest is led by the National Rescue Movement, with former deputies José Miguel Corrales and Célimo Guido as the leaders, and followed by various different groups coming together for one cause.

Through social networks, the organizers reported that they will be grouped from 7:00 am on Second Avenue, in front of the Ministerio de Hacienda and at 9:00 am will march to the Legislative Assembly.

“This does not end with one day. The strength of the movement is going to be in the different regions of the country, where the people are organizing and speaking out,” said Guido in a video posted on Facebook.

This movement has been highly criticized, because in another demonstration, there were acts of violence and people did not respect health protocols, such as social distancing and the wearing of masks.

In addition, network users have criticized the leaders for not contributing proposals to the problem.

"Rico" is the crazy mind behind the Q media websites, a series of online magazines where everything is Q! In these times of new normal, stay at home. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
