Anti-government protests break out throughout Colombia; police brutality reported in Bogota
by Emily Hart April 25, 2019

Largely peaceful demonstrations took place across Colombia, from cities to villages, with thousands taking to the streets for anti-government marches.

The protests were against President Ivan Duque‘s controversial National Development Plan (PND), and in defense of the country’s ongoing peace process, as well as railing against the high rates of murder of social leaders.

They come less than three weeks after nationwide indigenous protests that brought one of Colombia’s biggest highways to a total standstill for nearly a month.

Also on Thursday, indigenous peoples protested throughout the country to demand respect for their rights and government compliance to hundreds of broken agreements.
