Colombia Cracks Down On Protesters, With Violent Results


Colombia is seeing widespread protests sparked by a tax reform bill from the country’s president. While the bill has been abandoned, the protests have shifted to concern over economic and societal issues.The center of these protests is Cali, Colombia’s third-largest city.
