SHORT WICK: COLOMBIA PROTEST IN THE MIDST OF COVID 

Diary of a week of protests in Colombia. In a complex post-conflict scenario, in the midst of a pandemic and with a presidential election in sight, Colombians peacefully take to the streets to protest against a tax reform that was intended to punish the middle class; against excesses of violence and overflowing corruption; and to demand their fundamental rights to health, education and life. The police responded with bullets and the violence only seems to escalate, with people trapped in the middle wanting to live in peace.


LA MECHA CORTA: COLOMBIA PROTESTA EN MEDIO DE UNA PANDEMIA

Diario de una semana de protestas en Colombia. En un complejo escenario de posconflicto, en medio de una pandemia y con unas elecciones presidenciales a la vista, los colombianos se toman las calles de forma pacífica para protestar contra una reforma tributaria que pretendía castigar a la clase media; contra los excesos de violencia y la corrupción desbordada; y a exigir sus derechos fundamentales a la salud, a la educación y a la vida. La policía respondió con balas y la violencia solo parece escalar, con un pueblo atrapado en medio que quiere vivir en paz.
