Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Colombia: protesters call for end to police violence as demonstrations enter third week” – below is their description.
Colombians have marked the start of a third week of protests which had begun with demonstrations against President Iván Duque’s tax reform proposals but have since turned into broader actions against police brutality, poverty and inequality.
While the majority of protests have been peaceful, frequent clashes between police and protesters have occurred and at least 47 people have been killed and hundreds injured, according to officials. Local and international human rights organisations have blamed the police for the killings.
Duque has offered dialogue, but talks with union and student leaders have so far proved fruitless.
