Anti-war protester shot!!!

Wednesday, Carlos Geovanny Blanco Leguízamo, medicine student at Colombia National University, was shot dead during an anti-war protest in Bogota, Colombia. A group of students were protesting the bombings in Afganistan when police repressed the demo with violence. A group of students were confronting police forces who had invaded university campus when Carlos was shot at around noon. Police commander denies police are responsible for the
shooting but a number of witnesses confirm the shot came from behind police lines. Police occupied the campus for the whole afternoon. By night a lot of students were camping in the university and preparing protests for
Thursday. Corporate media has just ignored the episode.
