Pedestrians watch from a bridge as university students block traffic.
The always-active students of Bogotá’s Universidad Nacional, known as La Nacho, turned their anger against drips today. Chanting ‘No Más Goteros’, or ‘No More Drips’, they marched onto the avenue beside campus and blocked traffic. Students and others have long complained that the university’s buildings are delapidated and needing repair.
Yesterday, in fact, the law school’s roof collapsed in the rain, prompting students to hold ‘class’ on the sidewalk in front of Ministry of Education.
