Health workers in Puno threaten to radicalize indefinite strike

Workers of the regional health system defined strategies to radicalize their protest actions, reports Coordinadora Nacional de Radio (CNR).

An indefinite strike began two weeks ago. Victor Chura, leader of the strikers, says the group has so far not been heard by regional government authorities.

The strikers claim the regional president is keeping the regional health director, Angel Ramos Casas, in office for political reasons, despite the questioning of her competence by even the regional council.

“We’re will not stop the fight. We are not willfully misrepresenting things and have shown the inability of the current administrative director,” Chura says.

The group of strikers plans to make an assessment today that shows how the incompetence of Ramos Casas is allegedly hurting the public.
