Algarve taxi drivers will spend another night near Faro airport


According to Romão Alves, Faro regional delegate of the sector, “there is no indication to demobilize the drivers by the leaders who are in Lisbon”.

The company, which is in the process of setting up a new office in the city, will be working on a new project to develop a new office in the city that will be able to open a new office in the city.

According to Romão Alves, Faro regional delegate for the FPT, “there is no indication that the drivers will be disbanded by the leaders who are in Lisbon, so everything is prepared for the situation to continue for another night”.

Around 200 cab drivers are still concentrated near the cars occupying two lanes of the National 125/10 road, near the traffic circle accessing Faro’s international airport.

“For the time being there is no indication that they will disengage, and we’ll wait for orders from Lisbon, because we believe that tomorrow [Monday] the Prime Minister may receive the leaders of the various structures representing the cab sector”, said the regional leader.

According to Romão Alves, the drivers concentrated in Faro will not travel to Lisbon to take part in the walk from Praça dos Restauradores to Praça do Comércio, planned for Monday, and which will culminate with a vigil in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence.

“Here in Faro, we don’t have any initiatives planned. We’re just going to remain concentrated near the airport, where we’ve been for five days. Here we depend a lot on indications coming from Lisbon”, he stressed.

Romão Alves added that, despite the accumulated fatigue of five days ago, “there’s great motivation among cab drivers in the Algarve to continue the fight, until the objectives are achieved”.

“To occupy our time, we’ve organised a barbecue tonight, next to a giant screen, to watch soccer and socialise”, concluded the Faro regional delegate of the Portuguese Taxi Federation.
