Police Brutalize Hundreds of Colombians in Medellín Protesting Tributary Reform

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Medellín for a 2nd day as part of a general strike in Colombia against neoliberalism and demanding the fall of the Tributary Reform, which would increase taxes on basic goods and services such as utilities including water, electricity, and internet.

Police brutally attacked the demonstration, killing at least one protester and tear-gassing the rest, as well as brutally beating others that were caught alone.
