Cars driving around them honked in support of signs condemning U.S. financial and military aid to the right-wing regime in Colombia and its close ally, Israel. At a rally following the march, Lyn Neeley of Workers World Party said: “We need to put the blame for the violent repression in Colombia squarely on the shoulders of Washington.”
