Protests in Colombia as President Duque attempts to return peace legislation to Congress

Thousands took to the streets in Colombia to protest President Ivan Duque’s attempts to change the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP)law that established the country’s war crimes tribunal.

Footage captured on March 18 shows thousands of protesters gathering at Plaza Bolivar in Bogota.

Demonstrators can be seen holding signs with messages reading 'Porque queremos la paz' (We want peace) and 'El pueblo resiste' (We stand together).

The JEP law seeks to provide justice to the victims of more than a half-century of armed conflict and tackle the high impunity rate for crimes against humanity in the country.
