Program Title: Latin Waves interviews Raul Burbano director of Common Frontiers
Description: Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Common Frontiers director Raul Burbano, about the up rising in Colombia. From April 28 to May 8, the violent actions of the state security forces resulted in the death of least 47 people, the arbitrary detention of 963 people, 28 victims of eye-related injuries, and 12 victims of sexual violence. In total, they registered 1,876 cases of police violence. Yet despite the violence people kept coming out in defiance of the latest austerity package introduce by president Duque. Colombia has been known for decades, as the epicentre for violence against indigenous movements and workers. A country with seven USA military bases, intimidating their neighbours and its local population.

Raul reminds us that revolution is still a dance for people in Latin America, as people correct the history of colonization and conquest of America as a story of unceasing dignity. Not a day has gone without rebellion to injustice, repression and exploitation.

These are challenging times for everyone, more than ever we need to support independent media, consider supporting this show at
