Protests escalate against plans to construct Financial Tower in Panama

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Panama’s Financial Tower, to be erected on the site of the former American Embassy, is continuing to raise hackles and protests across the city.

As details emerge of the erosion of Panama’s historical “White Elephant” (Santo Tomas Hospital) the protests are getting louder, with suggestions that the government has ridden roughshod over protests and side-stepped legal requirements.

The Catholic Church has warned of the political costs of building the tower.
