Monday, November 28, 2016


A rural community along Colombia’s border with Venezuela protested the beginning of oil exploration efforts, saying it puts the area’s already scarce water resources at risk.

The protesters organized outside the city of Cucuta, in the department of Norte de Santander, against the Colombian branch of the Turkish Petroleum International Company Ltd, Turkey’s state oil company.
