The Judicial Workers' Protest

The marchers' float gave the protest a touch of carnaval. 

Judicial employees have been protesting for the last weeks, demanding pay raises. So have students of the SENA, the government trades school, who fear that a tax reform will slash the institution's funding. The government insists that won't happen.

The judicial workers' strike has shut down the courts, creating a backlog of tens of thousands of cases.

Judicial workers came from Soacha, in south Bogotá.
