Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released the following statement on the state killings of Colombian protestors and the hundreds more injured in recent demonstrations against anti-working class reforms.

"We stand with our Colombian brothers and sisters, in NY-14 and abroad, against the state killings of protestors. All people should have a fundamental right to demonstrate against their elected leaders. These citizens were protesting against anti-working class reforms and, for that, they lost their lives. There must be accountability for the long string of human rights abuses exercised by the Colombian government.”
