Marchers seek housing bonds for islanders

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.

Sign demands an end to discrimination for island dwellers.
