Colombia to break off relations with Israel

Bogotá, May 1 (Prensa Latina) Colombian President, Gustavo Petro, on Wednesday announced that his country´s relations with Israel will end tomorrow, in response to the genocide being committed in the Gaza Strip against the Palestinian population.

The statement was said by the president in a speech delivered at the Bolivar Square in the capital, where thousands of people are gathered to celebrate International Workers’ Day.

Here in front of you, the Government of Change, the President of the Republic, informs that diplomatic relations with the State of Israel will be broken tomorrow, for having a genocidal president, said President Petro.

The world could be summarized in one word, perhaps all slogans, all those colors could be summarized in one word, which vindicates the need for life, rebellion, the raised flag and resistance, that word is called Gaza, it is called Palestine, it is called the girls, the boys, the babies who have died because of the bombs, said the president.

If Palestine dies, humanity dies, and we will not let it die, he said.
