Prayer for Panama

22 Luglio 2022

Panama, recognized as one of the richest countries in Central America, is experiencing national protests. The increase in prices for food, medicine and fuel generated citizen discontent and gave rise to other political and social demands. Teachers started the protest and other unions joined. The president decided to reduce fuel prices and announced that some food products would have a subsidy and a 10% reduction in expenditure. People did not consider those measures enough. On Tuesday, the government and some protest representatives agreed to dialogue about the basic claims.
