Some 4,000 residents of the islands in the gulf of Nicoya are seeking bonds to build houses.
About 100 representatives of the residents marched from the Asamblea Legislativa to the Corte Suprema de Justicia Monday. They carried signs. The residents have filed a court appeal demanding that the state provide them with housing bonds. They come from the islands of Chira, Venado, Islita, Caballo and Cedros.
The marchers were accompanied by Gerardo Vargas Rojas, a legislator.
No state agency now provides housing assistance for those who live on the islands. The marchers are seeking equality under the law.
