Editor's Comment: Many moons ago the government of Panama privatized the ports in the country. Before this, the ports had been owned and operated by the government of Panama. These people who are protesting are former government employees, who were working at the ports when they were privatized. In short, the government screwed them over during the privatization process. They filed their claims, and have been fighting it in court for decades. There is no "justice" in Panama. If the government decides to slow-roll something, they will, forever. You will never see "justice" until the system decides it's time for you to see justice. The system decided a long time ago to screw with these poor people, and it's been screwing with them ever since. The "justice" system in Panama is one of the most broke elements in the country. Slow. Unfair. For sale to the highest bidder. Corrupt from top to bottom. In short, it sucks.
