‘Outraged’ Costa Ricans celebrate movement’s first anniversary

May 8, 2012

The Costa Rican branch of the “Movimiento de los Indignados” (Movement of the Outraged) is planning a public event to celebrate its first anniversary on May 12.

On its Facebook page, “IndignadosCR,” the group announced a rally at 12 p.m. in the Plaza de la Cultura, in downtown San José, to “celebrate the fight for a better Costa Rica [by] collecting signatures and publicizing  initiatives.”

At 4:30 p.m., the group will hold a video forum at Lobo Estepario, a half block west of the Legislative Assembly, to “summarize the social struggles that have shaken the world since early 2011,” the invitation says. Some members of the Spanish M15 and U.S. Occupy Wall Street movements will join the celebration.

The Facebook invitation is also asking people to join a “national action plan for a Costa Rica without corruption,” a citizen initiative that responds to “serious corruption cases that have been made public recently,” the group stated.
