Parts of Punda closed this morning due to manifestation

DSC_0213WILLEMSTAD - The police closed parts of Punda this morning for motorized traffic. The closed roads were the entrances to the downtown area.

This had to do with a call for a peaceful demonstration by the Forsa Revolushonario Korsou, the Curaçao Revolutionary Force movement.

This revolutionary movement started their demonstration at 7 this morning at the government seat in Fort Amsterdam. The manifestation is against Prime Minister DSC_0242Rhuggenaath, his government and the Members of Parliament.

In a letter, the groups cite anti-democratic and dictatorial actions. They did not go into more details about their claim.

The call for the manifestation was done by Calvin Jansen, Tony Pasial and Lucho Rosales, the latter on behalf of Pueblo Soberano being assistant to Jaime Cordoba in parliament. Pueblo Soberano, in turn, distanced itself from the demonstration.
