alejandro sanchez started this petition to President Joseph R. Biden and

There was a national strike in Colombia to stop an unjust tax reform. The government claimed there’s no money due to the pandemic and wanted to increase taxes on the poor and middle class while providing benefits to the wealthiest people in Colombia. People had no other option but to protest and they did in a peaceful manner. The government answer was to stop these protesters by force and violence. There are hundreds of videos that show how policemen are killing UNARMED civilians.

Important note- the Colombian government claims there’s no money to run the country, but they’re in the process of buying military airplanes from US. They bought a new presidential helicopter from USA. They bought new tanks for the Colombian police departments.

According to the NewYearTimes, the police have KILLED 19 people. 

please ask the Colombian government to stop killing its people, stop selling military equipment to Colombia.
