Protests in Costa Rica do not mean there is a social crisis, says president Laura Chinchilla. Most strikes resolved

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Protests and strikes that the Costa Rican government has faced in recent days are disjointed, and provoked by very particular circumstances, Laura Chinchilla, the president said.

The problems do not represent a crisis but a reaction to the administration’s efforts to put its house in order, said Chinchilla and her communications minister, Roberto Gallardo.

Gallardo added that you cannot say the country is in the midst of a social crisis when, of the six strikes staged last week only one remains unsolved.
