There is a virtual blackout of coverage by the American mainstream media concerning the national protest under way in Colombia. What little coverage I've found is biased towards the Colombian Government's version of events. The media's focus is not on the cause of the protest but rather the Colombian Government's accusation that radical Communist groups are infiltrating the protest. The planned protest that started August 19th led primarily by farmers and truckers, has grown to include other groups in opposition to Government policy.
The motivation for the protest was brought to my attention through a source that has close ties to Colombia and has asked to remain anonymous.
