The tent-renters and kiosk-owners of Cartagena‘s beaches want compensation for being forced to stop working due to security measures being implemented for the Summit of the Americas, reported Caracol Radio Thursday.
There will be no tent, nor vendors, wandering or stationary, so beach workers, will have to wistfully watch potential pesos go unearned.
Sunbathers will be unshaded, hair will not be braided, fish meals won’t be fetched, oysters won’t be opened. The mayor said there will be no compensation. “This is why one saves,” he said.
The Summit of the Americas is to take place April 14, 15 and 16 in the Caribbean coastal city.
