Popular mobilizations will restart in Panama for social demands


During a press conference on Tuesday, Frenadeso coordinator Jorge Guzmán clarified that after two meetings with the executive to assess some 32 demands, including the general increase in wages and policies against unemployment, the interest in responding was almost nil.

In this sense, he and other leaders of the group stressed that they will return to the streets to reject the position of the state, traditional political parties and misnamed independents, and to support the demand for greater benefits for the Panamanian family.

Guzmán specified that tomorrow, Wednesday, they will reject the complicit attitude towards the problems in a concentration near the office of the ombudsman, then cross the arteries of the city on the march and reach the facilities of the National Public Services Authority and the Consumer Protection and Competition Authority.

Likewise, next Thursday they will closely follow the results of the third session of a dialogue table with the government in the Presidential Palace, installed two weeks ago after demonstrations organized by the main trade unions and trade unions in the country, in the part of the recent United Creation of the People for Life alliance.

They also announced that another national meeting of leaders of labor groups in Panama will be held on June 25 to work out details of a citywide march three days later in honor of social fighter Federico Britton, 10 years after your physical game.

During the press conference, Frenadeso also condemned the political and hegemonic interests that are driven by the host of the United States during the IX Summit of the Americas, from June 6 to 10 in Los Angeles, California.

“We denounce the policy of surrender by the government of Laurentino Cortizo which is again appreciated in the run-up to the Friends of Biden (Joe) summit,” they said in a statement.

They also underlined the dignity of peoples and governments such as Mexico and the Caribbean countries that refused to attend this meeting without the participation of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, countries excluded by Washington.

At the same time, they were keen to convene an original Constituent Assembly, with full powers, to reform the state; and they also supported the upcoming process to register the Broad Front for Democracy as a political party, ahead of the 2024 general elections.
