Description

Currently in Colombia protesters are facing brutal reprisals by the U.S. backed regime. Like in many countries in the global south the austerity imposed state policies to protect the ravages of capitalism post 2008 crash are causing citizens from broad sectors of society to form coalitions to challenge government agendas to bleed the poor even further to cover for the abuses of capital that have brought forth the push towards austerity. On this episode, we will investigate Colombia's battle for economic humanity.
