A new day of protest at national level has been announced by producers for the next January 11, 2019, with the aim of demanding the Government to suspend harassment of producers through checkpoints of the National Police, the suspension of the proceedings of the Police leading to new arrests, as well as the withdrawal of all charges against the producers who have been prosecuted.
The decision of this new demonstration was announced during a General Assembly held on the night of this Saturday, December 22, by members of the Chapter of Los Santos of the National Association of Cattle Ranchers and the Cattle Ranchers Movement to the rescue, in which both were authorized boards of directors to coordinate with all organizations in the country this day of simultaneous protest in all provinces and counties.
They also announced other actions they will be taking, such as a vigil on Wednesday, December 26 at 10:00 am, at the installations of the Accusatory Criminal System of Chitre and at 2:00 pm a caravan departing from Santa Maria in Herrera.
In addition, the producers seek to "reiterate to the President the call to serious and responsible dialogue, directly with those who have been fighting in the streets, who will ultimately approve or reject their results, in the event that it is carried out."
It is worth remembering that these actions will be carried out after the confrontations registered on December 18 between members of the control of crowds and producers who were protesting in the Divisa sector, and after which several of the protesters were apprehended and imposed precautionary measures later.
