Reflecting the concern for the high rates of criminality and violence affecting our Panamanian society in the Historic Center, urban and rural areas; we wrote the following note to the UN, UNESCO, IAHC and others in media.
I signed this note after a bus driver was killed by bullets to the chest, on Friday at a University of Panama bus stop while trying to defend his passengers being robbed at gun point by youth and attending a Partido Alternativa Popular meeting to take notes and photographs for http://thepanamanews.com.. I caught the last words of the speakers on the importance to act to address the problems as part of community solutions that benefit the poor.
We would like your honest feed back. Policies and programs are needed to employ youth and general employment at liveable wages that guarantee a minimum human dignified existance. The ethnic cleansing taking place in our Historic Center has to be very carefully scrutinized by interinstitutional and interdisciplinary teams of social scientists, government and other community protagonists in the diagnostics and solutions.
