On 22 November President Santos was in London to promote British investment in Colombia. We went to the London School of Economics (LSE) to greet him, and to express our opposition to the big mining 'locomotive' and free trade agreements, given that they only bring misery and poverty.  The only ones who will benefit from foreign investment will be the multinationals and Colombian oligarchy. We also called for a full investigation of the false positives scandal (with at least 1,200 victims assassinated by the army) that occurred when Santos was Minister of Defence.

Then we formed a flying picket to make a second protest outside the famous Lord Mayor's Mansion House in the City of London.

The protests were organised by the Colombia Solidarity Campaign with Movimiento 22, Polo Democratico UK, LAWAS, LSE UCU branch and the afro-colombian music group Chambimbe expressing real Colombia.

Meanwhile, official Colombia continues to ignore the reality of its dirty war. Inside the LSE Santos joked about re-election.

Planton contra Santos a LSE


Ayer , martes el 22 de noviembre, estuvo Presidente Santos en Londres, con el fin de promover la inversión en Colombia al capital Británico. Fuimos a London School of Economics (LSE) a saludarle, a expresar nuestra oposición a la locomotora minera y los tratados de libre comercio, ya que en otros países solo han traído pobreza y miseria. Los únicos que se van a beneficiar son los inversionistas extranjeros y la oligarquia colombiana. También hicimos un llamado a que se investigue a fondo el caso de los falsos positivos, que ocurrieron cuando Santos era Ministro de Defensa.

Como piquete volante hicimos una segunda protesta frente el famoso Mansion House en la zona financiera de la cuidad de Londres.

Las protestas fueron organisados por la Colombia Solidarity Campaign con Movimiento 22, el Polo Democratico UK, LAWAS, el sindicato UCU del LSE y el grupo musical afro-colombiano Chambimbe. Se expresa la Colombia real.

Mientras tanto, la Colombia oficial siga ignorando las conseceuncias de su guerra sucia. Dentro del LSE Santos habla de reelección
