For the eighth day in a row Colombians take to the streets to protest

Labor, social, and student organizations continue protesting across the country.
Since the national strike began on April 28, they have poured out onto the streets, demonstrating nonstop for eight days.

Even though the government withdrew the tax reform that sparked the protests, there is still an undercurrent of widespread discontent sweeping the country.

Faced with increasing violence, protesters demand structural change in the police, and they also oppose the health reform and are calling for the government to honor the peace agreement signed in 2016.
