Now Colombia: large-scale protests swept South America

116

In Colombia, massive anti-government protests are ongoing that could have far-reaching consequences, the Al Jazeera television site writes.


The movement, originally initiated by trade unions, was later picked up by students and other broad sections of the population. The anger of the protesters is directed against the country's president Ivan Duke Marquez and his “austerity policies”, which hit the most vulnerable sections of the population against the background of an already difficult socio-economic situation. Now many are demanding the resignation of the head of state. Few people believe in dialogue.

The channel cites the opinion of several Colombians about the root causes of the protest. Among them are corruption, inequality, low pensions, street violence and the authorities' inability to achieve civil peace.

This is an awakening. [...] When I was young, we were too scared to do such things, but [now] must protest, because everything is only getting worse

- quotes the channel words 66-year-old Fernando Palacios.

It is noted that Colombia is also actively involved in the processes taking place throughout the region, with which it shares a common language and culture. For many months, protests have continued, spanning much of Latin America. In particular, at the beginning of this year, mass demonstrations almost ended in a coup in Venezuela, and in Bolivia, the conspirators, with the support of the street and security officials, managed to overthrow President Evo Morales.

Mass protests since October have rocked Chile, riots erupted in Ecuador, and a summer nationwide strike stirred Uruguay. The situation remains unsettled in Brazil and Argentina, where left and right populists only worsened the socio-economic situation.

Meanwhile, in Colombia itself, local experts point out that protests can be fueled by local representatives of drug cartels, who are not comfortable with the position of the authorities and attempts to block drug trafficking.

      correctly! In every Latin American country, a dictator should sit in a beautiful large cap, embroidered in a gold uniform with 7-row axbels and orders from the shoulders to the lower half of the uniform, and at the same time be replaced by another (same) at the click of a finger. Well ... for such liberties as changing the color of a uniform from turquoise to raspberry, for example, you can ignore it - democracy is all the same :))

              In modern times, so that people organize themselves for change? Honestly, I do not believe it. Take at least the example of Libya or Syria. All in the interests of foreign comrades. I do not know the real reasons there today. But what processes provoked poverty, I do not believe. And for sure there is a real reason that they don’t talk about. All processes in the world are of economic interest. Venezuela-oil, Bolivia-lithium (43% of world reserves), Colombia, possibly the same, oil, and uranium. Let there be small oil reserves, but nearby. And probably cheaper than oil shale.

          So it is so, but the mattresses are not satisfied with the fact that during the attempt to overthrow Maduro, Colombia did not participate actively enough, apparently fearing that the recently dozing civil war, with the help of Cuban comrades, would break out with renewed vigor and Colombia would not have time for Venezuela. The second reason the United States is reformatting the "Arab Spring" into "Latin American Autumn" is that Chinese and Russian interest has clearly intensified there, which can be resisted through creating a mess.

            You fantasize about what in fact is not. It is not necessary to look for an American trace in every revolution and revolution. Revolutions took place in the world before the formation of the United States. The coups in Latin America are a direct result of low living standards, corruption and lawlessness. Hence the problems, and in pro-American Colombia, and in pro-Russian Bolivia and Venezuela.

              The main reason for the coups in Latin America, taking place against a background of low living standards, corruption, and lawlessness, skillfully supported by the United States to maximize profits from this continent, which they have long regarded as their undivided fiefdom, is the intervention of the United States, for example, with a purely pragmatic goal to plant instead of one "gorilla" in epaulettes and a gilded uniform, a more suitable one. Here's a St. Petersburg Napoleon - with his hands would have been torn off. And if you need to deal with someone like Allende - well, then God himself ordered.

              As for Colombia in particular, for example, at one time the Isthmus of Panama belonged to it. When they began to build the canal, the next President of Colombia wanted something superfluous about this. They did not overthrow, but the proud Panamanian people immediately rebelled, and this worm-like appendix with extraordinary ease turned into an independent republic. And the channel ... What about the channel? And the canal is located in the Panama Canal zone, where the native police are not allowed. And the picture is roughly the same everywhere in Latin America. True, the cries of "Hit the Gringo" are still sometimes heard here and there, but who cares especially? Of course, the situation is already somewhat different than what was described by O'Henry in "Kings and Cabbage", but the general trend is still quite preserved.

      It's called "The Third Evolutionary Wave"

      Alvin Toffler believes that agrarian first the wave began from the era of gathering and lasted until the XVIII century, industrial second wave - until the 50s of the XX century, which began to replace the post-industrial third wave]. The third wave, according to Toffler, will completely replace the second by 2025.

      Postindustrial society - a society whose economy is dominated by an innovative sector with a high-productivity industry, a knowledge industry, with a high share of high-quality and innovative services in GDP, with competition in all types of economic and other activities, as well as a higher share of the population engaged in services, than in industrial production.

      In a postindustrial society, an effective innovative industry satisfies the needs of all economic agents, consumers, and the population, gradually lowering its growth rate and increasing qualitative, innovative changes.

      Scientific development is becoming the main driving force of the economy - the basis of the knowledge industry. The most valuable qualities are the level of education, professionalism, learning ability and creative approach of the employee.

      The main intensive factor in the development of post-industrial society is human capital - professionals, highly educated people, science and knowledge in all types of economic innovation.

        It is now believed that the post-industrial era is changing the information one. In it, the main product will be produced in the information environment. The change of eras is happening rapidly and almost simultaneously in all countries. That’s why the unrest goes around the world. And not only in 3 countries of the world. Yellow vests in Europe from the same series. The states have a greater margin of safety, but they also cannot avoid shocks.

                They simply redistributed income in favor of groups dependent on the United States. The task has been completed and now "fighters against drugs" are no longer needed in the government.

                Americans have been grazing on the production and traffic of drugs for a very long time. And we are always ready to stand up for the "human rights" of those who produce them. In the Philippines, in Afghanistan and now, apparently, in Colombia.

                  This does not apply to the supply of drugs to the States themselves, they are struggling with this very actively. Therefore, they have no benefit from destabilizing the situation in such a state close to its borders.

                      I partially agree. I would like to add that so much drugs are imported into the states that it was not possible without US government agencies. Not to mention the implementation.
                      Another thing, is it possible to interrupt drug trafficking only by strengthening border controls and striking production?
                      For example, the USSR not only successfully fought against drug crime and the popularization of drugs, but also carried out a lot of free social programs in society that completely occupied people, giving no reason to look for adventures on the railway. And the very structure of American society, with their values, drove people there to the point that every third there is already a drug addict for a long time. True, he takes drugs not from a black man in the gateway, but at a pharmacy, according to a prescription from a psychiatrist.

      it does not make sense since it already exists. if states like that would decide there are enough of such countries around. Colombia will always do what they are asked without talking. if you are talking about rocking it and then setting all these revolutionaries on Venezuela, then this is utopia. there the army is regular and very serious. which will also help. all that is happening now is the consequences. when the states try to change the regime somewhere they don’t think about what will happen later. all the nonsense in the world is precisely because of this. start with Afghanistan and get the Taliban movement that is only getting stronger or Iraq where, after idiotic decisions, you yourself know what arose. etc. etc.

    Is it Maidan or not? Protest against neoliberal capitalism in Colombia
    Activists of the Libertarian Union of Students and Workers (ULET, a friendly organization of the International Association of Workers) took part in a general strike and mass protests against the neoliberal reforms and repressive policies of the authorities in Colombia on November 21 and 22.
    The call for a strike and protests was spread by trade unions, student, peasant, women's and Native American organizations, creative unions, and political opposition organizations. Massive indignation in the country is caused by the plans of neoliberal reform of labor and pension legislation. They are aimed at raising the retirement age, privatizing the state pension system and reducing wages for young workers to 75% of the minimum wage. Another cause for dissatisfaction was the authorities' actual refusal to implement the 2016 peace agreement with the rebels and the ongoing terror against social and opposition activists. Students demand higher education costs and university accessibility.
    Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of Bogotá, Medellin, Cali, Barranquilla and dozens of other cities of the country on November 21. In the morning, the march in the capital was mostly peaceful, but in the evening it grew into clashes with the police. Collisions were noted in other cities. In the Valle de Cauca department, 3 people died (https: //www.neues-deutschland.de/.../1129037.soziale-gerechti... ...)
    For 16 hours, the capital and most of the country were paralyzed. In total, more than 300 demonstrations took place in 100 cities and areas of Colombia. In total, more than a million people took part in the actions. The protest included a partial mass strike, demonstrations, clashes with the police and individual acts of collective expropriation in shops and supermarkets.
    In Bogotá, protests began at 5-7 a.m. in the districts of Transmilenio de Suba, Norte, 20 de Julio and Sur: local neighborhood organizations launched street agitation and put up small blockades of roads. From 8.00 to 16.00, mass demonstrations were held, in which 300 thousand people took part in the capital. 5 marches from different parts of the city merged together in Bolivar Square, near the presidential palace. Between 17.00 and 19.00, violent clashes broke out between groups of youth and students, on the one hand, and the ESMAD police special forces in various parts of the capital, especially on Avenida 68, in the area of ​​the National University, in Bolivar Square, and then in the historical center of Bogota, including Suba area with Cali Avenue, where the protests did not stop all day. After 19.00, the spontaneous solidarity of the population turned into mass "kaserolasos" - "marches of empty pans" in the neighborhoods and new marches from different parts of the city (https: //grupovialibre.org/.../balance-preliminar-del-paro-nac... ... ).
    The authorities have taken draconian security measures. At least 4000 police officers were taken to the streets of the capital. The country's borders with Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela were closed. In the Bolivar Square in Bogota, in the evening, the police dispersed with gas and brutally beat the demonstrators who blocked the streets. In the densely populated Suba area in northwest Bogotá, police deliberately blocked several metro stations and attacked demonstrators at Portal de Suba station. The protesters, chanting "The united people will never be defeated!", Rebuffed the guards of the capitalist order, despite the tear gas (https: //thefreeonline.wordpress.com/.../colombian-police-atta... ...)
    After the clashes in Bogota and Cali, the authorities imposed curfews in Bogota, Cali and several other areas. The media launched a fierce campaign of harassment of radical protesters. In Cali alone, 420 were arrested for violating curfews. The union bosses hastened to disown "acts of violence" on behalf of the National Strike Committee. The chairman of the trade union center KUT Orhuela said. that protests should be "centralized, meaningful and organized." He assured that the committee and trade unions do not support new calls for protests. The leader of the trade union center "General Confederation of Labor" (https: //www.rcnradio.com/.../comite-del-paro-nacional-no-resp...) condemned the violent actions in the same way. For their part, the comrades from ULET believe that although there is nothing good in the actions of destruction of property, as such, the damage caused is hundreds of times less. than the damage caused to the country by the neoliberal policy of the authorities.
    Despite the agreement of the union bosses and the repression, protests continued on 22 November. "Caserolasos", which spontaneously started on calls in social networks on Thursday evening in Bogota, Cali, Medellin, Cartagena. Bucaramanga and other cities took place at night. On social networks, a call for new peaceful protests at 16.30 spread in the main squares of cities, including Bolivar Square in Bogota (https: //www.elespectador.com/.../na.../nuevo-cacerolazo-convocad ...)

    Oh really? After all, it is only left-wing governments that "bring the people to poverty", cause a shortage of toilet paper, etc.

    So it seems like this is a faithful minke ... "son"?
    Or is this process heading for a new Bolivarian revolution?
    However, just start the process, and then it will go by itself !!!
    Stripes seem to have forgotten about this.

    Well, as an option, they are preparing a new reincarnation of the Alcaid-igil. Now they will be fighting, led by drug and terrorist terrorists all over the world, who have sat exclusively in the jungles of South America.

    Three Colombian pigs killed in a bomb blast
    Three policemen were killed in a bombing at a police station in Colombia after thousands gathered to renew protests against a repressive capitalist state. The militants also began to rob bourgeois enterprises around the capital.
    Ten pigs were also injured in an explosion late Friday in the city of Santander de Quilichao, in the southwestern province of Cauca. https://www.amwenglish.com/
    To make it clearer.
