Members of the National Coordination of Indigenous Peoples of Panama protested, on Thursday morning, at the entrance of the Ministry of Environment, in Albrook.
This, they said, to show their rejection of the lack of attention from this institution, in their demands for collective land titling.
Marcelo Guerra, one of the spokespersons of the coordinator, said that to date if three requests of this type have been attended to in the last years. And it’s about applications dating back 40 years, he said.
He added that, if they do not get answers, they will call other protest actions. “People are going to leave if the minister [Emilio Sempris] does not take care of us,” he said.
