Meanwhile, in Colombia, clashes broke out this week between protesters and security forces. The violence in Bogota came just after President Ivan Duque held a meeting with the protest movement. Neither side was able to agree on a clear path forward, with demonstrators instead staging a new national strike on Wednesday.
