By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Right now it looks like the riot police strategy of entering into the construction sites to arrest everyone throwing stones and blocking streets is working. They have managed to reopen most of the city to traffic. There are no reports of conflicts right now, and it appears the police have simply decided not to confront the workers in Punta Pacifica that have closed the Southern Corridor. At this moment there is a period of calm as the SUNTRACS leadership meets with the Labor Minister and CAPAC at the Defensoria del Pueblo on Calle 50.
