The actual president of Colombia has been driving the whole country to misery. Spending billions to reinforce the "security" of Colombia and preparing it for a non-existent war, making Colombia the second country in Latin America with the highest investment in military spending ImageImageImage
Colombia is not only mad for the waste of money while we are on a pandemic but also due to his new tax and health reform which affects us in so many ways. Everything started with a pacific manifestation, but the response of the government was violence
5th day marching and this is the price we are paying for protecting our rights, the ppl supposed to protect us are literally killing and assaulting us.
35 civilians assassinated, a woman sexually assaulted, 31 missing ppl, 45 human rights defenders attacked.

The media is trying to make it look like nothing's happening. They're hiding the truth about what's going on.
"Celebration for changes in the reform" when no one was celebrating but protesting against the tax reform Image
The police brutality is taking young lives, taking the freedom away from everyone who doesn't support the president, who's not in their side.
They aren't aiming their tear gas to the sky, they are aiming to the protesters. ImageImage
They are not only using tear gas but also firearms.
They don't care about the elder people.
"resistance, resistance" was used for marching so this police was not only attacking but also mocking those unarmed protesters
"My only son, my only son, you have to kill me too"
"I will go with my son, is my only son, was my only son. You have to kill me, you have to kill me too, you have to shoot me too"
"Son, son, my baby, take me with you, my love".
That was the mother of Santiago. He was killed while trying to stop the ESMAD with paint balloons, described as a defensive tactic to make them back up. As Santiago, there are +30 more assassinated on the hands of the State. Image
How can you help us?

Make this visible, share this situation with everyone, this State is massacring us and no one is here to help us.

I am sadly continuing this thread, I can't just sit here when there are injustices and threats against us.
I actually have no idea how to explain who are the people behind the autodefensas but just imagine them as extreme Trump supporters who think the only solution is to kill. ImageImage
"their services" means to kill every person they want to in exchange for money, by the way.
And now, to protect themselves, they are using horses. I am really wondering how messed up is someone's head to risk those innocent animals just because you can't handle a country properly? @IvanDuque cobarde.

Right now Palmira is in chaos, they're shooting at the protesters, chasing them, the medical assistance is not enough for the people who are needing them.

It's devastating listening to how the medical assistance is begging for help, listen how desperate this woman is. Imagine being scared of the people who's supposed to protect us. The ESMAD wants to ambush them and take advantage of the lack of visibility.
The police is using their vests backwards, so they cannot be identified in case they do something they are not allowed to.

This is our president. He will be giving a SPEECH about how to lead a country... Yep, while innocent people are being humiliated, attacked and murdered in their own country. I don't really know how to call this, inhumanity is looking way too soft.
For unarmed protesters... The whole country is now fully militarized and no one's here to help us. Remember when I said at the beginning of the thread that he was getting ready for a non-existent war? I take it back, he war is against its own people.
