The Peasant Development Committee (CODECA) announced blockades throughout the country starting at six in the morning on Tuesday, September 19. The group assured that there will be no passage in any of the steps that they will cover.
At eight in the morning the authorities confirmed ten blockades that prevent passage in both lanes, but as the hours passed they freed the roads. At three in the afternoon two blocked points were still confirmed.
CODECA assures that its protest, which will prevent free movement throughout the country, is to express its rejection of the legal actions after the second electoral round and to pressure for the resignation of some authorities.
The organization accused of electricity theft, in which several of its followers have been prosecuted and sentenced, to the People’s Liberation Movement (MLP) party, a party that could not participate in the general elections with its presidential binomial.
