November 21 march in Colombia

Hundreds of thousands of Colombians took part in some of the largest marches against the policies of President Iván Duque on Nov. 21.

The protests were generally peaceful, but there were also violent groups trying to destabilize the events.

In the capital, incidents between demonstrators and riot police took place in the Plaza de Bolívar, outside a train station, on the road to the international airport.

President Duque highlighted the "spirit" of the "peaceful protest," although he harshly criticized the acts of "pure vandalism" in Bogotá, Manizales, Medellín and Cali.

The clashes left at least 57 civilians and 70 police wounded, and 43 detained throughout Colombia.

Complaint against Evo Morales for crimes against humanity

The government of Jeanine Áñez will charge Evo Morales before the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

They will also file another complaint at the national level for sedition, terrorism, and armed uprising. 

Both accusations come from the audio recordings presented two days ago by the Bolivian government, where Evo Morales is supposedly heard giving orders to "fight" and "not let food enter the cities."

In addition, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented a "formal protest" to Mexico for allowing Morales to attack the stability of the government by violating his condition as a political asylum-seeker.

Bolsonaro sends project to arm the Armed Forces

 

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro sent Congress a bill to outfit military personnel working in public security roles

The bill gives judicial guarantees that the armed and security forces will continue to patrol in the slums in Rio de Janeiro. 

The project has been expanded to include "legitimate defense" when an agent fights off an attack that has the potential to kill or injure, restricting the freedom of a victim, or an act of terrorism.

Bolsonaro made the announcement along with the presentation of the new Alliance for Brazil party, which proposes to return God's place in the life, history, and soul of the Brazilian people.

The new party will also strive to spread the truth about the crimes of revolutionary movements, such as communism, globalism, and fascism.

Chilean government rejects Amnesty report

The government of Chile called the harsh report published by Amnesty International on "widespread" human rights violations by security forces "irresponsible."

The report accuses the army and the Chilean police of committing "widespread attacks" and using "unnecessary and excessive" force against demonstrators to "discourage" protest.

Lorena Recabarren, undersecretary of Human Rights in Chile, said, "The government categorically rejects the report without even requesting information from the government, seeks to establish the existence of a deliberate policy to harm the demonstrators."

The army, which was on the streets for the first eight days, said in a statement that its actions "fully conformed to the rules governing the use of force."
