"The public school teachers have been on strike for the last 34 days. Each day they march in various parts of the cities and pueblos of Colombia pleading their case with the Minister of Education and the President. On June 13 they gathered in the plaza and then marched a few kilometers down a main avenue of the city holding torches as the sun set. They chanted and sang parodies of popular music, making the lyrics about the politicians."
