    Since Monday syndicates and public workers have been involved in a week long strike against the 1.'combo fiscal'

    1. A set of new taxes/changes to current taxes and the removal of certain benefits to public workers

    Since tuesday, a few individuals not related to the on-going strike have been taking advantage of the situation to cause chaos by comitting violent acts, specially in the province of Limón where some have even set things on fire (like trucks), stolen items such as TVs from stores, set blockades (such as burning burning tires in the road to prevent people from passing/arriving to their destinations) and other things

    Authorities are working to maintain public order

    This events usually take place at night and the strike may continue next week
