"We will continue in the streets until President Carlos Alvarado desists from negotiating the IMF billion-dollar loan," the leftist leader Celimo Guido said.
Costa Rica's leftist National Rescue Movement (MRN) called for maintaining the protests that have been shaking the country for the last ten days against the government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
"The protest in Costa Rica does not stop," MRN activist Celimo Guido said after one of the political movement's main leader, Jose Corrales, urged an end to the demonstrations.
"We will continue in the streets until the president desists from negotiating the IMF loan," Guido added, alluding to the $1.75 billion credit that President Carlos Alvarado intends to request.
In mid-September, Alvarado announced that he would ask the IMF for that amount, which would imply greater indebtedness and impoverishment of the working class.
