Bogota - Thousands of indigenous people are demonstrations against the government of Colombian president, Ivan Duque, for compliance with various demands related to the right to life and the cessation of violence.
The 'minga', as the indigenous protest is also known, will gather on Thursday in Bogota to demand answers from the ruling clique regarding the increasing violence reigning in the country, the violations of the Peace Agreement and the territorial disputes.
To date, Duque has avoided the leaders of the minga, who proposed a face-to-face meeting to resolve the disputes.
According to Noticias Caracol, government spokesmen say that the president will not meet with the community for now for alleged political interests.
The Bogota Patriotic March group declared on Twitter that it is going to 'receive the indigenous authorities, social movements and peasants from our minga to demand that Duque listen to them in the name of life, territory, democracy and peace.'
For his part, Senator Feliciano Valencia also denounced on Twitter that 'if we indigenous peoples did not mobilize we would have already been exterminated,' to which he added that everything is the result of 'the inability of a government that puts the Colombian people at risk.'
Likewise, the Regional Indigenous Council of Cauca showed its 'total support for the social and community minga.'
