We cannot sit by in the seat of empire as people are murdered and maimed for fighting against state violence, not only in Colombia, but in Palestine, Myanmar, Chile, too many places across the world.
We call on comrades in the US to block the streets and, like the Colombian protesters, turn the barricades into community spaces! The fight against all state and colonial violence is our common cause! Join the strike on 5/28! Take to the streets!
Solidarity can come in many forms. Organize an action according to what you think will be most effective in your area. “Now is the time to shout that in Colombia the government is killing people for protesting,” la lucha continúa!
