What are Colombians protesting? Why are police gunning them down? And why is it being ignored? I was joined by Camila Escalante and Ollie Vargas, Bolivian-based journalists for the independent outlet Kawsachun News. They spoke about the police killing protesters in Colombia, state-backed massacres of social activists, Colombia’s role as a US-backed destabilizing force in the region and how where ever the US meddles in Latin America, drug trafficking and right-wing violence follow. They also touched on the latest developments in post-coup Bolivia, what’s really behind the violence at the border between Colombia and Venezuela and the CIA’s recent woke video ad.
