Publicado el 12 may 2021
Red Lines host Anya Parampil speaks with Colombian journalist Laura Capote about the situation in Colombia, where the state has waged a violent crackdown against protestors demonstrating against a proposed tax law that would burden the poor. Capote explores the deeper roots of the uprising, explaining how the Duque government has refused to implement peace accords signed in 2016 and carried out systematic killings of human rights defenders in the country. She also discusses the economic situation in Colombia and the lack of international attention on the struggle in her country.
