Two Galapagos legislators and representatives of social organizations of the archipelago resumed protests. They wore white shirts with black letters that read “Justice for Galapagos.”
The group shouted slogans against the government, “Correa listen, Galapagos is in the fight,” and announced their support to the strike of August 13.
“We are not sitting with arms crossed, we will go to the streets because we want a new law, drafted with the consensus of the people,” told to Diario Expreso the Assemblywoman of Avanza, Fanny Uribe. She said that if the government wants dialogue, it must be unconditional. “We ask them to release the political prisoner Eduardo Veliz. The Galapagos people are against this law because it harms them all,” she said.
They filed a claim of unconstitutionality to the Galapagos Law in the Constitutional Court. This regulation was approved by the government majority, 60 days ago. In addition to an injunction to suspend its application.
