It took more than 20 hours for about 100 members of the Association of Education Workers of Cauca —Asoinca— to arrive in Bogotá, who protested in front of the facilities of the Congress of the Republic in order to be heard, since they have a list of Petitions centered on the demand that the national government not allocate health resources to the EPS, but that they themselves should manage them.
What is Asoinca, the Cauca teachers’ association that threatens to take over Bogotá
The teachers that make up that union assure that the Government fails to comply with them; these are your requests
In the midst of these demonstrations, the president of the Senate, Roy Barreras, launched a strong message against the protesters, many of whom wear red and black clothing, alluding to the organization they belong to; He even suggested that they might belong to the ELN.
Through his Twitter account, the president of the Legislature asked “if this blockade of Congress is a legitimate union protest for health resources or an expression of groups related to the ELN as suggested by their outfits and harangues.” He even asserted that if he belonged ―as he suggested― to that guerrilla, he asserted that said demonstration in front of the Capitol would be “an illegal political expression of a group in arms? Is it part of some “partial deal”?”
