São Filipe, Oct 30 (Inforpress) – The Taxi-Fogo Association, made up of taxi owners and taxi drivers, canceled the peaceful demonstration scheduled for today, following a meeting held on Tuesday afternoon with the mayor of São Filipe, Jorge Nogueira.

The president of the association, Denildo Gomes da Silva, told Inforpress that following the negotiation with the mayor, the association decided to cancel the demonstration waiting for the fulfillment of the commitments made by the local authority.
