Sad Clowns: The Circus Protest

For these clowns, this fight is no joke.
Among the many protests I've seen in Bogotá, today's circus workers' march was one of the most colorful. However, like a sad clown, the circuses say their future is endangered. One man I talked to said that taxes on circuses are going up; another said the circuses are being strangled by regulations and red tape.

Whatever the troubles, the circuses' extinction would be a great loss to Colombia's children.

'The traditional circus lives.'

This guy's not clowning around!
