Since the end of August, many protests have been organized in various cities in Colombia. At least 44 people were killed in the protest.
Initially, the protesters protested the tax reform, which has since been withdrawn. Since then, opposition to health care reform (and withdrawal of the opposition movement) and advocacy of a fragile peace process are the reasons why people take to the streets.
In Colombia, the civil war that lasted for more than 50 years killed 220,000 people. In 2016, the government and the guerrilla group FARC reached a peace agreement, which led to the development of the economy and tourism, but the peace was fragile, and violence and police clashes and conflicts occurred frequently.
