Colombian Protesters Call for Second General Strike

HeadlineNov 27, 2019

In Colombia, anti-government protesters have called for another national strike today, after talks between a protest committee and right-wing President Iván Duque failed. Massive protests have rocked Colombia for six straight days. Last week, hundreds of thousands of people poured into the streets for the largest national strike Colombia has seen in decades. Four people have been killed so far, including 18-year-old student Dilan Cruz, who was shot in the head by a police projectile.
