    Did the initial protests have something to do with taxes?

    columbia is a mess. after visiting a few cities down there i can see why people would risk their lives trying to get into america. poverty in america is luxury compared to what's south of the border.

    There certainly will be. I just suspect there will be a good amount of far right "protests" as some lose power.

    Yep. If I'm following it correctly, the protests started off about some tax. Police began abusing/killing the protestors, and now the protests are also about police violence and frustration about Colombia in general?

    I believe they were mad about the police first. I think what's been going on in the US lately has shined a light on the problem around the world because it's an abuse that happens everywhere...

    Not sure when the tax stuff began but this is the first I've heard of it

    :manny:

    edit looks like the tax proposal was already withrawn
