Colombians take to the street to thank Uribe

Hundreds of Colombians in cities across the country took to the streets on Sunday to thank President Alvaro Uribe for his achievements during his two terms in office.

The marches were organized by Uribe supporters in Congress through social media website Facebook and marked the president’s 58th birthday a little more than the month before he steps down.

In Bogota, Uribe supporters expressed their support for the president’s possible candidacy for mayor of their city.

The controversial president enjoys an approval rating higher than 60% despite numerous scandals during his eight years in office.
