Students Clash with Police in Colombia

At the end of October, the United States and Colombia signed an agreement allowing the US troops to be stationed at 7 military bases in Colombia. This agreement expands US involvement in the war on drug trafficking in Colombia, and shows the influence of the US in the region. This agreement has been met with harsh criticism in Latin America, and the video below shows students fighting with riot police in protest.
