Demonstrators are demanding action on rising electricity rates and water issues.

Temas:

A group of taxi drivers closed various key routes this morning in Colón.

The protests occurred at the entrance of the Panama-Colón Highway, at the height of Puerto Escondido, and in Arco Iris, Transístmica, Villa del Caribe, La Feria and other areas along the coast.

Leader Luis Ladeo said they are demanding government action on increases in electric power and problems with water distribution.

The protest is being supported by residents of several communities.

Ladeo said they are also seeking a crackdown on pirate taxi drivers and the sale of taxi licenses. He added the protest will continue until a response is received from the government.

The closures began at about 6:30 a.m.
