Uruguay's Energy Minister Elisa Facio said Monday that there would be no fuel shortage in the South American country despite a stoppage in the distribution chain.
The guild grouping Uruguay's fuel distributors announced a 72-hour strike starting Monday which could lead to shortages in the South American country, it was reported in Montevideo. The measure was adopted after changes in the Law of Urgent Consideration (LUC) regarding fuel distribution regulation costs affected the activity, it was explained.
Cuban authorities had to cancel the traditional May 1 Labor Day Revolution Square parade due to the shortage of fuel, it was announced Tuesday. Smaller events will be staged instead in communities, labor, and student centers for several days and parades in the country's municipalities, it was explained. The main event will take place in Havana's Malecon.
