By Rubén Morales Iglesias: A group of people protested on Saturday, May 8, 2021 in Guatemala City against the government for what they called inadequate measures against the emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, said Prensa Libre.

Prensa Libre reported that a group of people gathered at midday at the public monument Obelisco in Guatemala City and made their way to the National Palace of Culture in demonstration against the government of president Alejandro Giammattei.

While the vaccination centers in the Guatemalan capital, remained closed during the weekend because of a decision made by the Guatemalan Ministry of Health, the protesters made calls on the government demanding more vaccines against COVID-19.

The protest started at the Obelisco and went along the Reforma Avenue. Along the way the protestors painted several monuments including that of Guatemalan Nobel Literature Prize winner Miguel Angel Asturias.

Prensa Libre said when the protestors got downtown, they also painted and damaged several businesses on Sixth Avenue.

The protestors demanded that the government acquires more vaccines and accelerates the vaccination campaign.

Prensa Libre reported that up to Friday, May 7, 188,671 persons had been vaccinated in all of Guatemala but only 2,457 had received a second dose.
