Hundreds of Colombians in Pasto Protest Tributary Reform & Privatization

Hundreds of protesters in Pasto took to the streets as part of the 4th day of a general strike in Colombia in opposition to the Tributary Reform, which would increase taxes on basic goods and services, as well as against the privatization of healthcare and hospitals. Demonstrators took down the statue of Antonio Nariño in the city center and were then attacked by police who shot tear gas and later militarized the city.
