Colombia's ruling party calls on divine support after protest raises witchcraft fears

by Billy Wallace December 14, 2018

Former President Alvaro Uribe said Wednesday that Colombia’s ruling party has carried out religious rituals in response to protest against its senators earlier some believed was an act of witchcraft.

Protesters on Tuesday threw confetti and mice at the senators of the hard-right Democratic Center (CD) party and their leader, who is investigated by the Supreme Court on charges related to his alleged formation of a death squad in the 1990s.

Opposition Senator Gustavo Bolivar apologized for the incident after suspicions that one of the protesters was an activist of Gustavo Petro‘s Humane Colombia movement.

But this was not enough for the CD, which was told that the protest action by the alleged environmental activists could have been an act of witchcraft targeting the party behind President Ivan Duque.
