Protests on Calle 50 demanding transparency and an end to confinement
Calle 50 was the scene this Thursday, February 4, in the afternoon of a protest by various groups that demand transparency from the government and an end to the confinement that is due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Carrying posters with messages and chanting slogans, dozens of protesters made their protest voices heard while receiving the greetings of drivers honking their horns.
"Despite good openings on the 8th, there are still many things pending, because we feel that the government hasn't been pressured enough," said Mario Luis González, from the Association of Restaurants, Bars and Clubs.
For his part, Sandy García , from the Association of Theaterists of Panama stressed that they are still waiting for a plan to reactivate the cultural sector.
"We are still waiting for a plan to reactivate the cultural industry. The theaters can open on February 15 and we don't even know the capacity allowed"
