Colombians to Resume Protests Against President Duque

Defense Ministry will deploy 6,000 police officers and 2,700 troops over Bogota city.

Colombia's National Strike Committee (NSC) called on citizens to take to the streets on Tuesday to protest against President Ivan Duque and support ten bills aimed at fighting the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The July 20 protest, which coincides with the celebrations of the Independence Day, will encompass 35 peaceful sit-ins, marches, and cultural activities.

NSC called on Colombians to demonstrate with helmets, masks, and shields to protect themselves from the Mobile Anti-Riots Squadron (ESMAD), which has been blamed for serious human rights violations.
