|Union Patriotica Party supporters march down Ave. Septima yesterday.|
Yesterday, U.P. supporters held a commemoration march for the 'Genocide of the Union Patriotica' on the anniversary of one of the most infamous assassinations of a party member, the 1987 shooting outside of Bogotá of U.P. presidential candidate Jaime Pardo Garzon.
Sadly, soon after the U.P.'s reconstitution, its supporters started fighting amongst themselves over who controls the reborn party.
