During the last 36 hours, the protests in Colombia, specifically Bogota, have intensified on both the sides of police and protesters. The death count has been upgraded to 10, and the injury rate has increased to 140. Police have been filmed several times opening fire on protesters, and paramilitaries have now been seen working with the police and using police weapons against protesters. Over 20 police stations have been burned down as well.

Protests

Protests have steadily become more and more militant in Bogota, as the police continue to murder and injure people at protests.

Police Brutality

Police have opened fire and killed protesters several times, and have been seen working with people in plain-clothes who have used police weapons to shoot protesters.

Police-Paramilitary Collaboration

Police have been filmed working with plainclothes figures, who many suspect to be paramilitaries such as those in the Aguilas Negras (Black Eagles), a fascist-leaning coalition of anti-FARC forces.
