Riot police fired tear gas at protesters in Bogota on Wednesday during an eighth day of nationwide anti-government demonstrations, after crowds attacked police stations in the capital overnight.
The protests were originally called in opposition to a now-canceled tax reform plan, but demonstrators have broadened their demands to include government action to tackle poverty, police violence, and inequalities in the health and education systems.
Demonstrations and lawmakers opposition led to the tax reform's withdrawal and the resignation of the finance minister. International organizations have warned against police violence, which is so far . . .
