PANAMA FLASH! Panama City –May 11th, 2022

A civilian demonstration erupted Monday, May 9th in Colon City – Panama (Atlantic side), blocking and paralyzing completely the Alberto Motta Toll Highway and the Boyd Roosevelt Public Highway. These two highways are the only two main artery road’s that connect Panama City with Colon City. The labor action is to demand that the government addresses their local needs, including creating jobs and investing more in the province’s infrastructure

The protesters gathered in several areas across the highways and main road impeding all type of public, private, passengers and cargo transportation mobilization to and from Colon City.
