Photo’s and Video of today’s protest from Soacha, and Bogota

Photos of Colombia’s protests: tension in Soacha, gritty area near Bogota, from El Espectador, can be found here:

‘Soacha bloqueada por protestas’

The headline reads:

“The neighboring municipality awoke on Thursday to find the streets blocked by protests. No public transport was available and there have been acts of vandalism.”
If there are any ‘acts of vandalism’, one should first take a look at the actions of the riot police, the ESMAD,: see this report today by Colombia Reports: ‘Colombian government to answer for ‘excessive’ force used in protests’
Even the Wall Street Journal has carried a report, there’s a short video of protestors fighting back.
