Colombia: Clashes and arrest as taxis drives go head to head with police in Bogota

Taxi drivers in Bogota launched an indefinite strike on Monday to protest over against ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Cabify, and to demand that laws regulating their sector be enforced. Tensions erupted when taxi drivers blocked the streets and refused to leave their cars in protest. Police then forcibly removed them from their cars and made numerous arrests. There are almost 53,000... Еще registered taxis just in the city of Bogota in Colombia, a city of nearly 8 million people. Taxi drivers demand from the Superintendency of Industry and Commerce to take action against the companies, but according to the Transport Ministry, Uber and Cabify, have the right to operate through their smartphone applications. The Bogota Mobility Secretariat threatened with sanctions for those who will disturb public order and mobility during the protest.
