PHOTOS: Workers march against tax reform in Costa Rica
On May 1, International Workers’ Day, Avenida Segunda in San José was filled with banners and marchers during the traditional protest held each year in Costa Rica. The protesters, led in large part by labor unions, criticized tax reforms under consideration at the Legislatively Assembly to address the country’s large deficit.
This year’s march featured the Bloque Sindical y Social Costarricense (BUSSCO), bananeros and piñeros (banana and pineapple workers), feminists, immigrants from Honduras and Nicaragua protesting against their own governments and many more. Take a look.
