Protesters Burn Courthouse in Colombia

In Colombia, where since April 28 the protest does not weaken, a courthouse was burned in the night of Tuesday to Wednesday by protesters in the city of Tulua, in the department of Cauca, in the southwest of the country.

The flames have destroyed a good part of the roof and the second floor of the judicial institution.

The offices of the mayor of Tulua and those of the city’s Apiculture Department and Transportation Department, as well as capitalist businesses, were also attacked by revolutionaries in the protests.

While the police have murdered at least 43 people since the protests began in Colombia, revolutionaries are continuing to intensify resistance to the far-right wing Duque regime with attacks against state and capitalist institutions around the country.
