In this sense, the organization urged to publish multiple messages on social networks, throughout the day with the hashtag #National Strike25M; also to develop small concentrations that guarantee the protest. The national flag should be raised with a black ribbon, noted the National Strike Committee.

All this framed in the fight against the neoliberal package of President Ivan Duque, his corruption, labor and pension reforms and in rejection of social leaders' and former guerrillas' murders and for the fulfillment of the Peace Agreement. Therefore, we demand that the government open negotiations with the Committee, set out the trade union movement.
