FARC: The people of Colombia took to the streets
Bogota, Sep 29 (Prensa Latina) The FARC (Fuerza Alternativa Revolucionaria del Común, Alternative Revolutionary Force of the Common) party said that one of the most important achievements of the Peace Agreement is that the Colombian people took to the streets to express their disagreements and their aspirations.
'It is undoubtedly one of the most important achievements because the discourse of the war that points to protesters as enemies of the State is increasingly unsustainable,' as per a tweet of the political force.
In the last two years, numerous demonstrations against government actions have become recurrent in the country, although they are also repressed by the public force.
In November of last year, the social mobilization resulting from the discontent of the citizenship in relation to the economic, social and environmental policies of the administration of president Ivan Duque, as well as the handling of the peace accords, against the assassination of social leaders (farmers, indigenous people and reinserted former guerrillas) and the corruption within the Colombian government, marked a milestone in this country.
High school student Dilan Cruz, 18, was killed on November 23rd by a projectile fired by the Mobile Anti-Riot Squad (ESMAD), in the context of the protests in Bogota, although they spread to several other cities.
But other mobilizations such as those carried out this month continue to express discomfort with Duque's government in the face of the increase in massacres, the mismanagement of Covid-19, the breach of the peace agreement signed in 2016, among other issues.
The Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) recently issued a ruling against police abuse and in defense of social protest.
