Celebrities and protesters question Colombian FM’s trip to US

Celebrities and protesters question Colombian FM’s trip to US

Bogota, May 21 (Prensa Latina) Celebrities and demonstrators are currently questioning a visit by the recently inaugurated minister of Foreign Affairs of Colombia, Marta Lucia Ramirez, to the United States, where she will deal with the issue of the social outbreak in her country.

On Thursday, the foreign minister lashed out at an op-ed article against point 2.2 of the Peace Agreement, which deals with the participation of citizens in politics, the right to protest and the guarantee of the same by the State.

Humberto de la Calle, chief negotiator during Juan Manuel Santos’ government in the Havana talks, suggested Ramirez to read the Agreement previous his trip.

Likewise, for the president of the Comunes party, signatory of the Peace Agreement, although the new FM is opposed to full citizen participation, ‘point 2.2 of the Peace Agreement is exactly what the country needs at this moment: Guarantees for the mobilization and peaceful protest of a people tired of social injustice.’

Meanwhile, the National Strike Committee reiterated its request for the presence in Colombia of an international commission to observe on the ground the human rights situation in the context of the social protests initiated on April 28, marked by police repression.

In that regard, she does not see it as a good idea for the government representative to handle the issue in that country with human rights organizations, but rather with the protagonists of the strike themselves.

According to the agenda disclosed in a fragmentary manner by the local media, the minister will hold meetings with human rights organizations and with members of Joe Biden’s administration.
