Signs of a Revolution: La Universidad Nacional de Colombia Photo Essay

La Nacho Bogota

Revolutionaries of all ideals

Do you remember the proposed educational reform that caused (and is still causing) uproar in Colombia that I told you about?

The first face-to-face contact I had with the anti-privatization movement was in Tunja, when I interviewed Niro, a student at the Universidad Pedagógica y Tecnológica de Colombia. Around the time I started asking questions and doing research, I had heard that at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá, the movement was even bigger.

I happened to be on campus yesterday to watch a concert, though the graffiti and artwork captivated me instantly and re-sparked my interest in the fight. I think the photos speak for themselves.
