10:33 pm
for watching. bye for now. me. ah. hi, i me okay. it has been more than 2 months since, protested the cost columbia hit the streets, an overturned a tax reform proposal, but the demonstrators didn't go home as the activist demands have grown. so we are asking right now, what is it that the government response is going to be like, how the by test is dealing with it and what are they asking for right now on
10:34 pm
today's episode of the stream, we start a book, a talk with to demonstrate this important thought about the most important thing is to make visible all the abuses that have taken place in our country. there have been many cases of abuse. we as a people have the right to protest. the constitution says we have rights. and at this moment, we are not supported. we are fighting for the rights we have had for many years, for the body doesn't know because i'm only when i go to this is an indolent state. it is a state that doesn't talk to the people. it talks through force and weapons, we want peace, democracy, life. we don't want a state of terror. we don't want the states where people are murdered, but where there are minimum guarantees. they cannot assassinate the youth. who are the future of this country that need to help us cover the processing columbia? we have christina elizabeth natalie. so good to have all of you, christina festival, introduce yourself to stream audience. and in the context of these protest,
10:35 pm
tell us who you are and what you do. hi, my name is christina noriega, and i'm a freelance journalist based in book with the columbia, who has been covering the protests for the past 2 months. it to have you had a really interesting yourself to the stream audience really great to be here. thanks for the chance. my name is elizabeth dickinson. i'm a senior analyst for columbia international crisis group. we're a conflict prevention organization and i've spent the last 2 months delinquent this across the country, both in rural and urban areas get to happy and natalie, explain your connection to the current protests in columbia and introduce yourself, try international audience. thank you very much. and now one of the members, she's an independent clinic from waiting on that on the co worry the test we are actually doing different activities around the different floor. and in the teach.
10:36 pm
so i have an idea of why these protests are ongoing. why people didn't just go home and say, wow, that was amazing. we actually feel we overturned the patch reform proposal. my idea is it's cove it. but if you're watching right now on your youtube, you can jump into a comment section off, i guess your questions. i be part of today's show, elizabeth, i'm thinking that coverage is connected to why people didn't go home. these demands have grown. you'll take absolutely. so i think the way that it was described to me, i thought very well by one of the put sisters that i spoke to the family, which has been the epicenter of the it's a city on, on the pacific coast where natalie is with us today is based and the way that she explained it to me was really the tax reform that's part these process. it simply uncovered. our eyes uncovered our eyes to the broad array of injustices and inequalities that really characterize columbia. this is a company with very limited social mobility, access to education,
10:37 pm
to the job market that is strictly limited. and on top of that, as you mentioned, a year of worsening pandemic, so the pandemic has hit columbia so hard. we've had on and off balance that affected the most vulnerable the most of all. why? because informal job, those people cannot afford to stay home. they can't work virtually income groups that in the lowest income in columbia were far more likely to become you to not have access to medical care and to lose their job during the pandemic. so all the inequalities that exist already in society, the work goes by the pandemic, and worse. and so that is why i think the crisis today has really ribbon and just such an extent that it requires a response in order to, to move forward. christina, as you're doing your reporting, how are you making it make sense to the people who are following your reporting? what are you saying is the reason why more than 2 months later, there was so many demands from all over the country and for so many groups from
10:38 pm
what i've seen in my reporting is that there are also a lot of people on the ground community members in a marginalized neighborhoods who feel like they've gone on her for a very long time. they want to make sure that these protests don't and without some other demand being heard and some of the demands are very local and unique to their communities. these are also neighborhoods where there's a lot of violence, there's a lot of unemployment poverty, and they want to make sure that their demands are also hurt. natalie, you are in a place that has become the epicenter of protests and demonstrations. it's a place called cali, can you tell me a little bit more about pointer stair resistance? yeah, it is a very special place and how that situation happened is, is part of the what fuel the current protests, there are no police that now. right?
10:39 pm
sure. what this one of those fancy me, what point we more than pretty fine, i guess right now most of pullover seasons. are there any more will rolls for the seal fighting, but we'd be put in a 60 includes activities before we the people are joining forces to request saying all the voices that we had in the city and they're all over our cd over the place entirely. it was served a part of the cd or the tv and eric and they are just places where the gathers to talk to each other to see what's next to share for the for i'm for, for one to raise to feel libraries. and
10:40 pm
i've seen these gathering when they say they are in the different parts of the cd because we see chill or we can, we can talk with each other because we're building some people that are making these neighborhoods. christine, i just said there was a lack of access to education to employ me is that these, they just really, really my pe, the tribe because we know that we can do before in an amazing team for our neighborhood, for our people here for nothing. can you list all of the things that you want? i think that's the 5, just the on one hand, i might not have a know have 5 immediately that you want as an activist from your government right now 5 came but i was, i think one of them was for the, you know,
10:41 pm
you just mentioned it before we kinda fell out of this information going around white company a little bit what has happened before. so i think one of the thing is to help the government accountable for the peace they're happening most normally . right now we've tried all day to more right violation. we're all the peace of the government, you know, do eat their employees, they should be corey or humor. right. you know, there to be taking factors in putting to education a to call or into the all the different things that we need. if they've been doing that job and people don't and we all, we all pay taxes is that we don't see that money anywhere. so what the hell when
10:42 pm
are comfortable, the other one is to see that or not putting out this information or make information out in the other really here to people, you know because they just don't want to hear anyone. they just believe with each other, with the people, one of you, one of the richest people here with the people that are in power. so we really need to feel, we are really, really tiny. it's a really diverse tv, but we need to do the greatest places together to show that the our team is still on the, on the full knees with all these last and i want to, i want to come, yeah, i'm going to, i'm going to come to that because part of what fuel these demonstrators is, how the police is reacting than how the government has reacted. i was going to
10:43 pm
bring in the voice of cruise and then i'm going to go straight to you, elizabeth, have a listen to clues and then come off the back in terms of the government response to these protests his chris. so a lot of the progress is the young people who feel left out of the system. they feel left out of the coven recovery. they feel less out of the implementation of the piece records. and then another demand has been to the criminalization of protests that we've seen has surged in response to the pro. so this has been the impression that everyone seen from this, from the right police, from, from just read re being used by the, by the administration. criminalizes progresses and instead of responding to the administration has responded with mc, ryan law was enabled, progresses urban terrorist and it tries to print a already
10:44 pm
a legal form of protest. elizabeth, how would you describe the government response to demonstrations? well, i think, you know, one of the, one of the reasons that this crisis has become so entrenched is that from the beginning the government hasn't seen it as a political crisis, but rather of curity crisis. and because of their that viewpoint, they've been very heavily on the lease in an attempt to control their protests. but what's happening on the street is not as security crisis. it is a deep social and political cry from the vast majority of colombians to be heard and to have real solutions and fill. the reliance on the police has in fact entrenched the process and i think it created the 2nd set of grievances. so the way that we think about it is that the, the sort of socioeconomic frustrations, the difficulties of sort of daily life really form the base of why people on the street. but the reason they stayed on the street was because of police brutality. and now that has the mercy is perhaps the single most unifying grievance among the
10:45 pm
processor is to have accountability for the way that the policeman has responded, how they responded, sometimes actively firing on processors using non lethal weapons inappropriately. so for example, shooting your graphic loose range or in very dense neighborhoods, i think it's worth stating that the police in columbia were created to that time of conflict. and in many ways the institution continue to operate on that model. it hasn't have this hard moment of examination. after the peace accord in 2016 was signed that ended that armed conflict about what does it look like for a police to act in a country that is in peace. and so the relationship between citizens and the police continues to be very conflicts, christina shavers. he asked us some headlines, which i absolutely show that you are familiar with. and you've been reporting on colombian press under attack, a national strikes, columbia agree, just police abuse is against protest. this one more headline here. colombians has formed the anti government protest. hundreds have gone missing. christina,
10:46 pm
how do hundreds go missing where they gone? what is happening? what a lot of human rights organizations have insane is that police will arbitrarily arrest protesters. and then these protesters are taken to police stations, but then the reports of the detained it. it doesn't, it ends there. there are no more reports of what happens to them after that. and that's how a lot of these protesters go missing. and so a lot of these human rights organizations have had to communicate with police stations to figure out where these protestors are detained and where they are located. i want to bring in his the presidential advisor. his name is a miller, i know and he's been in dial up, isn't having conversations with the protesters, but it looks like now the government taking a much firm allied have a listen. have
10:47 pm
a look. know they look, i was looking there can be no more roadblocks. they are illegal, they are violent and they're not a peaceful way to protest. if they happen, authorities have to abide by the law. this means being very firm against those who do not protest in a peaceful manner, firmer against the vandals, and the firmest against those who commit terrorist acts while taking advantage of the peaceful protest was in contact with any. this is intriguing because the government spokes person, he's saying he's supposed to be talking to the protest. this is calling some of the acts, terrorist acts, but the happy people have been killed during these protests. so where is the violence happening? is it happening on both sides? is this an overreaction from the government? are they just tried to stop the protesters? how do you see this? i think, and i've seen a lot of people can meet it. it's been over violence from the government and over
10:48 pm
reaction coming for me. and i think it's misleading. what is the growth or violence? because the book and most places where people got it, you know, in the restaurant because they don't want people to kill what is happening, what, all the or my doing all the things that they're going to be doing. so they say this is something the battle of but the role doing the same thing. what be in a, for example, that is coming from a person by p. and the only way the team really violent is when the police people in this month, people get there in a to that, that people their own, the room. so we have a place for violence that,
10:49 pm
that was vital there. the was trying to put something on balls in looking to be sure to pay any your cd. you showed him in the kind of media that john paul putting up on shadow social media that somebody in the media is because they want us to be quiet and we know what to do that. and that when they say they know, partly because we just go to a screen and just want to tell them what is what really happened here. me good if i would jump in. yeah, go ahead. elizabeth and christina you fall on what? so i just wanted to draw and what not to leave a thing because i think one of the things that has been very distinct about this process movement is the use of blockade. so blockades, within cities and located between cities, i think it's useful to think about why this is the form of process that has risen at this moment. i think it very much relates to something that christina and
10:50 pm
natalie were saying about how communities want to take back their own economy toward their own economy. when these blockades emerge, essentially it was a way to create a space in which citizens could be safe, to organize things, to have conversations safe, to set their own futures and to determine their own goals. these are in areas where you talk to youth and they just feel they have no control over their life. they have no access to access to higher education. they have no access to the job market . they are segregated in parts of the city that are stigmatized as being criminal or stigmatize of being so poor. you know that they'll never get out of that cycle. so this, these blockades really were a right to reclaim bad narrative. they know we're going to build internally, we're going to build our own community. i think that has what is what is interesting about this moment and what could persist. and what could really take this crisis in a positive direction, which is to say that local leaders have emerged in communities. ideas have sprung
10:51 pm
up within the community. how could we organize? how can we create our own library, our own spaces for you? how can we make sure that our communities empowered and that's a space, but that has been reclaims the why the blockade. it was because of this need to reclaim one on future and control over that fate. we're going to go ahead. yeah, i would add to that the add to that, that a lot of youth that are organizing are also trying to see what is going to end up from these protests. they are really trying to create a movement that will outlast the mass protests that we've seen. dined down any way they want a transformation in their neighborhood because they have been burdened by illegal economies by unemployment, by violence. and what you've seen is communities that are coming together and fundraising to create libraries like others have said,
10:52 pm
they've created workshops and pretty much different things for their communities. and what i also want to, yeah, what i wanted to add to is that a lot of people have also said that if it weren't for the blockades, they wouldn't be able to start negotiations with the mayor in cali, for example. they feel like the protests previously weren't powerful enough for them to start negotiations and that the blockades have allowed for this to happen. so get, i have a number of questions for you from you chief audience. i'm going to ask you the question is going to do an instant response and instant response. so we can get as many in as possible. carlos says next year, columbia will have president on congress elections. that will be a change for the people. how will it natalie elections next year? change not change. instant outset. very quick. go ahead. i hope so. i think other
10:53 pm
people are paying for the people, the roles in the system organ at each other to go on boarding pools and also to do to be in the, in the boarding pool to see what is happening there. okay. how do i know that we have for natalie? ms. rainey is also watching these rainy se kudos to you, elizabeth, you make a great point. if the police are formed during a war time, they will take that mentality to the citizens. could that be changed and is about very quick response, please? i think it has to be changed for the effectiveness of the institution with every day. there's losing credibility because of the way that the police are behaving in response to the very communities that they're meant to protect. and one more, this is from savannah of answers on youtube. thank you for watching. thank you for being part of the show. what role with an activities are ordinary colombians doing to support the protest i've indirectly or directly in schools, what places,
10:54 pm
etc. christina, you take that one because obviously with violence on the streets that must have a chilling effect for the demonstrators. what do you think? i have seen a lot of disenfranchised youth organized to protect protesters during these marches . and so they have created sort of a front line to defend themselves. and that's also been an interesting develop from these recent protest. sophia is in bogota and she has a really interesting take on what is needed right now. natalie, i'm going to ask you to respond to sofia's response very quickly. here she is. festival. the most important threat you to share, the change the auditors are demanding columbia to listen to them from ob, use. but the response of the goal, my husband to send the public courses, so to speak, demonstrations rather urgent dialogue. if you space is for participation, that the government has promoted help, not be inclusive or representative. and there has no evidence of political will to
10:55 pm
comply with the claims. second peterson poor going to have long term vision. most of the problems that people are currently practicing, structural capital loot. so it is necessary to guarantee the social on the clinic, right. we public policies that go beyond the electron swing and short term approach . natalie, you have the miles from your government. what happens next? what i was thinking about this is night, but nobody knows what is going to happen every day. and because we are in such a diverse country and a push, the cd, everything seems can change. and every day that we see the response will be just switch later. we don't have something, there is an important the only b u l is here and we can enter
10:56 pm
a we can choose the weekend people my age, which is nobody on so i seem it's like very like the work done. but i think this is going to be something along the wrong, you know, you something that it's not going to result in a mall and going to me on something that he's here for a while. but the major problem is, what is the question, what you say the go or money? just know, and he's not implementing eric anything. he did it, they get an implement. so they're gonna do anything for you, but we just going to keep quiet in black. that's something that we can assure that we're going to keep fighting back in one day. i'm looking at it, which is july, the 20th, when congress comes back into work. and i am wondering whether that might be the date with a national strike committee, where the demonstrated,
10:57 pm
the protesters are giving their demands to congress in a sentence. elizabeth, what are your expectations? so my protests have already been called again for the 28th of july, and i think it's very possible that we see the movement gain momentum. once again, this idea of dialogue is crucial and it hasn't happened yet, and it's not only national dialogue, it's sort of a national level among the lead talking to the bells, which is what it historically, isn't columbia hop to reflect the reality of the process, which is decentralized at a local level and listening to the st. elizabeth natalie and also christina, thank you so much for being part of our show today. if you want to follow them and you want to follow the expertise, have a look here on my computer. you can find christina, you can find a elizabeth, and this is a noise ratio, which is part of the organization that natalie is part of. thank you. everybody. thank you for your comments and questions. i'll see you next time take,
