6 monate vor


It is a month since the start of anti-government protests in Colombia. What began as demonstrations against tax reform have widened into a campaign for social justice. The government has confirmed at least 17 people have died in the security crackdown but the number is believed to be much higher. More than 100 others are missing. The crackdown has prompted growing calls for police reform.
