Colombia's anti-government protests Part 4: Peaceful anarchy

by Adriaan Alsema May 13, 2021

Colombia’s security forces apparently entered panic mode and the government of President Ivan Duque all but collapsed after the US Congress reiterated threats to cut military funds.

The panic was most evident on the National Army’s twitter page, which suddenly began publishing in Spanglish about mysterious “spirit of body and military training.”

The prosecution and the police additionally announced investigations into reports on widespread human rights violations against anti-government protesters.

This violence that surged after protests began on April 28 suddenly stopped on Wednesday when police apparently retreated from the streets in the major cities.
