|Hunger-striking veterans on Plaza Santander.|
|Heroes or villains?|
These police and military veterans are protesting on Plaza Santander across from the Museo de Oro in La Candelaria, demanding pension benefits they claim the government owes them. This same group of men made headlines two weeks ago when they entered the grounds of the presidential palace and were driven off with tear gas.
About two dozen of the veterans are carrying out a hunger strike, altho they only began yesterday.
