5:34 pm
most important thought of 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. you know, because i'm only on the phone. this is an indolent states. 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 to 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 our stream audience. and in the context of these protests, tell us who you are. and what you do hi, my name is christina noriega, and i'm
5:35 pm
a freelance journalist based in book with colombia who has been covering the protests for the past 2 months to have you had it interesting yourself to the stream audience really great to be here. thanks for the chance. my name is elizabeth dickinson. i'm senior analyst for columbia international crisis group. we're a conflict prevention organization and i've spent the last 2 months the link to this across the country, both in rural and urban areas get to happy and not only explain your connection to the current protests in columbia and introduce yourself try international audience . thank you very much. yes, and now one of the members, now she's an indifferent clinic from waiting technical on that. and we're only covering the protest we are actually doing different activities around the different employees in the page. so i have an idea of why these protests are ongoing. why people didn't just go home and say, wow,
5:36 pm
that was amazing. we actually feed is we overturned the patch reform proposal. my id 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 amounts of credit. you'll take absolutely. so i think the way that it was described to me, i thought very well by one of the professors that i spoke to the family, which has been the epicenter of the present. it's a city on, on the pacific coast where natalie is with us today is based and the way that she's painted me was really the tax reform, best parties, both as it simply uncovered. our eyes uncovered our eyes to the broad array of injustices and inequalities that are really characterized columbia isn't a company, but very limited social mobility access to education, 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,
5:37 pm
and we've had on and off last downs that affected the most vulnerable the most of all. why? because it informal jobs, those people cannot afford to stay home. they can't work virtually income groups that in the lowest income to columbia were far more likely to become ill, to not have access to medical care and to lose their job during the pandemic. so all the inequality is that existed already in society. the work both by the pandemic and worse. and so that is why i think the crisis today has really riven 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 makes sense? the people who are following your reporting, what are you saying is the reason why more than 2 months later, there are so many demands from all over the country and for so many groups. from what i've seen in my reporting is that there are also a lot of people on the ground community members in marginalized neighborhoods who
5:38 pm
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 kelly. can you tell me a little bit more about pointer stairs is 10, it is a very special place and how that situation happened is, is part of the what fuel the current protests there? no police that now, right? sure. what this one, or what point we more than 45, i guess it's been a right now most and they put over systems,
5:39 pm
or is there any more? come, we'll roll for the seal fighting, but we'd be put in a include t before with the people joining forces to requesting all the voice that we have in the cd. and they're all over our cd over the place entirely. they are a part of the cdns itself or. 1 the tv and they are just places for the gathers to talk to each other, to see what's next to share for the door before him for, for one to rave to feel libraries and themes, these gathering the, when they say they are in the different parts of the cd because we see
5:40 pm
children, we can talk with each other because you're building something or making these neighborhoods. christine, i just said there was a lack of cation to employ me. is that these, they just really, really my pay mean? try. because we know that we can do these for teens, for our neighborhood, for our people here for nothing. can you missed all of the things that you want? i think that's the 5, just the on one hand i could, you might have, you know, have 5 immediately that you want as an activist from your government right now. i came but i was i think one of them was for the, you know, you just mentioned it before. we were waiting for him to fill out this information
5:41 pm
going around on what happening and what happened before they tired. so i think one of the dean is to kill the government for the peace they're happening normally. so right now we try old a few more right by elation. but all the piece of the government, you know, do eat their employees, they should be corey or humor. right? you know, there to be factors in put it into keisha, into quote or into the all the different things that we need and they not doing their job in people. and we all, we all pay taxes is there, we don't see the money any worse. so what the hell when uncomfortable, the other one is to she's not putting out this information only
5:42 pm
information out in the other really here to people, you know, because they just don't want to hear anyone. they just speak with each other with the people they want to hear when the reach of people here with the people that are in power. so we really need to feel we are really like where the country and tommy is a really big tv, but we need to do the greatest places together relating to each other. and our team is still holding on these police with all these last month. i want to, i want to come by. yeah, i'm going to come to that because part of what fuel these demonstrators is how the police is reacted and how the government has reacted. i'm going to 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
5:43 pm
a 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. and then another demand has been to the criminalization of protests that we've seen has surged in response to the process. 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 processes and instead of responding to the administration has responded with mc, ryan law was enabled, progresses urban terrorist and it tries to prevent a yeah, already of the forms of protest. as of how would you describe the government response to demonstrations?
5:44 pm
well, i think 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 under security crisis. and because of that viewpoint, they've been very heavily on the police in an attempt to control the process. but what's happening on the street is not a security crisis. it is a deep social and political cry from the vast majority of colombians to be heard. and to have real solutions until 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 the, the sort of socio economic frustration, 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 processor is to have accountability for the way that the policeman has responded, how they responded, sometimes actively firing on protesters using non lethal weapons inappropriately.
5:45 pm
so for example, shooting through your gas at close range or in very dense neighborhoods, i think it's worth stating that the police in columbia were created to the time of arm conflict. and in many ways the institution continues 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, ne shavel, he asked us some headlines, which i absolutely show that you are familiar with. and you've been reporting on colombian. press on the attack in 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, how do hundreds go missing where they've gone? what is happening?
5:46 pm
what a lot of human rights organizations have insane as bad. 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 protesters are detained and where they are located. i want to bring in, here's the presidential advisor. his name is emilio. i know, and he's been in dial up to having conversations with the protesters, but it looks like now the government a taking a much firm allied have a listen. have a look know they had him. okay. was there can be no more roadblocks. they are
5:47 pm
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 in contract levy. 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 happening people have been killed doing these protests. so where is the violence happening? is it happening on both sides? is this an overreaction from the government? are they just trying to stop the protesters? how do you see this? i think i've seen a lot of people can't. it would mean if it's been over violence or mental over reaction coming for me. and i think it's misleading. what he said that the broker
5:48 pm
or, or bio because the book most places where people got it, you know, and they say that 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 there is one thing but the. 2 role doing the same thing. what be in, for example, that is coming from a person by the and the only way the team really violent is when the police people in this month, people get there to that, that people will grow. so have a place for violence that that was there. that was trying to put something on balls in look, you know, saying that he should be silent,
5:49 pm
should pay your cd. you showed him in the media that you don't, paul putting up on shadow social media that the, that the media is because they want to be quiet. and we know what to do that to us when they say that because we just go to it's quoting, i do want to tell them what is really happening here. me good. if i would jump in. yeah, go ahead. elizabeth and christina you 5 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 don't think it's useful to think about why this is the form of process that has arisen at this moment. i think it very much relates to something that christina and natalie were saying about how communities want to take back their own economy toward their own economy. when the blockades emerged, essentially it was
5:50 pm
a way to create a space in which citizens could be safe, to organize safe, 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 where rates reclaimed that 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 persists. 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 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 community is empowered and that's a space,
5:51 pm
but that has been reclaims the why the block, it was because of this need to reclaim one own future and control over that fate. christina, go ahead. yeah, i would, i said 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 they've created workshops and pretty much different things for their communities. and what i also
5:52 pm
want to, yeah, what i want 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, you going to do an instant response and instant response. so we can get as many as possible. carlos says next year, columbia will have president and congress elections. that will be a change for the people. how will it naturally elections next year change not change. instant offset, very quick. go ahead. i hope so. i think other people are paying for the people that are local in the organization, each other to go on boarding pools and also to do to be the in the and the
5:53 pm
boarding port to see what is happening there. okay, how know 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? elizabeth? very quick response, please. i think it has to be changed for the effectiveness of the institution with every day they're 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 chavez. chavez is on youtube. thank you for watching. thank you for being part of the show. what role with an activities are ordinary colombians doing support the protest i've indirectly or directly in schools, what places, 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?
5:54 pm
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 protests. sophia is in boca, and she has a really interesting take on what is needed right now. natalie, i'm going to ask you to respond to sophie is response very quickly. here she is festival. the most important for you to share the change the auditors are demanding columbia to listen to them. it seems obvious, but they're responsible to my husband to send a public courses to them and stretches rather urgent. dia, look, if you basis for participation that the government has promoted, have not been inclusive or representative. and there has no evidence of political will to comply with the claims. second, either in order to have long term vision,
5:55 pm
most of the problems that people are currently practicing truck 0. take a look. so it is necessary to guarantee social, i think, would be great. with 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 these are tonight, 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 was the, the request for the room and the just switch, something is really important. i only be here entirely weekend and the weekend the weekend people my age which is nobody on. 1
5:56 pm
so, i mean, it's like the, like the words don't think this is going to be so long to roll. you know, you something that it's not going to, we're told in a mall. i'm going to long here for a while. but the major pulling is what be where from what you say the go or money, just know that he's not implementing eric anything he did, they get an implement. so they're not 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, the protest is all giving their demands to congress in a sentence. elizabeth, what are your expectations?
5:57 pm
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 and 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 protest, which is the centralized at a local level and listening to the streets. and it's of us, 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 noise radio, 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, ah,
