Hundreds of protesters gathered across Panama City, blockading roads and clashing with riot police to demand that people under 25 be given a solidarity fund for food at $100 per month. Several arrests were made, with many students facing sexual harassment under detainment.
A construction workers’ union went on strike and blocked the main avenue in Punta Pacífica.
Students then gathered at the Cinco De Mayo Avenue and faced off with police, while making caricatures of the president and demanding the solidarity bonus.
Police then began to move in on protesters with riot shields and rubber bullets, making arrests en masse while clashing with students who threw rocks and other projectiles in response.
Per its violation of social media, we will not be adding the videos of sexual harassment of arrested students taking place.
