The National Border Service — SENAFRONT — distributes Panamanian flags in Darien’s La Palma district. This branch of Panamanian law enforcement talks about instilling patriotic fervor, but it’s more basic than that. They want people to think that they are Panamanians who live IN PANAMA, not accidental residents who live in some “gap” between Panama and somewhere else. Moreover, there is the hope that the normal reaction when some armed band that isn’t SENAFRONT comes through the neighborhood, Darien residents will summon the police. SENAFRONT photo.
