(Colombia) Colombia presents new tax reform to Congress amid more protests (Al Jazeera)

Al Jazeera writes: Colombia’s government formally presented a $3.95bn tax reform bill to Congress on Tuesday, as unions and student groups sought to revive the street protests that helped scupper the reform’s original iteration. The law would raise significantly less than the $6.3bn package that was sought by the government in an April proposal that was later withdrawn amid mass demonstrations and lawmaker opposition.
