Mass rallies are being held in the city of Bogota as Colombian unions, farmers, indigenous groups, and social organisations call for a national strike against the National Development Plan (NDP) announced by the government, APA reports citing Sputnik.

According to the protesters, the plan, launched by Colombian President Iván Duque Márquez, would jeopardise the social situation in the country due to changes to pension plans and an insufficient education budget.
