The thousands of indigenous protesters that had marched to Bogotá to
demand the return of land, improved health care and education, the
respect of their rights and protection from paramilitary groups will
return home Monday.
“The Minga (gathering) ends and we will return to our lands. We’ll make one goodbye march through Bogotá and are thinking of passing the U.S. embassy to try to approach international indigenous communities,” spokesperson Henry Caballero told reporters.
An indigenous delegation will stay in Colombia’s
capital to talk to the government about made agreements.
