Police Assault Tens of Thousands of Colombians in Bogota Protesting Tax Reform

Tens of thousands of protesters in Bogota returned to the streets for a 2nd day of demonstrations as part of a general strike against neoliberalism in Colombia and the Tributary Reform, which would put in place a tax hike on basic goods and services such as utilities including water and electricity.

Police brutally attacked the demonstrations with water cannons and tear gas guns, long thought to have been lethal. In spite of such repression, demonstrators regrouped in different areas throughout the day.
