Reports from Bogotá, Colombia, explain how it was on the day of the working class in the city, where different organizations, revolutionaries, unions, student groups and popular masses went to the Palestinian embassy. From there, the march made its journey to the city center showing red flags with the hammer and the sickle, with banners and flags of different organizations while making graffiti, actions and posters in support of the Palestinian people.

In a speech during the march, the history of this day and the martyrs of Chicago stood out but also the importance of the struggle of today’s society, highlighting the Palestinian struggle and the struggle against imperialism. Finally, the governments of Colombia were also denounced, who are lackeys of imperialism and allow military bases of Yankee imperialism.

During the march, other slogans were made, remembering those killed, missing, raped and detained during the great social outbreak of 2021 and empty promises from this. Finally, the hymn of the working class, The Internationale was sung.
