Colombia: Tear Gas Flies As Clashes Erupt at Student Protest

Around 250 student protesters clashed with the police in the municipality of Soacha as they were protesting various issues in the public education system, including budget and teacher quotas.

Footage shows protesters throwing rocks and other projectiles at the police, as police is firing tear gas at them.

Similar events took place in Bogota later in the day, where student demonstrators were also met with tear gas.

These protests precede a general strike called for by unions and student organisations and that is planned for March 25.
