All it took was 93 characters to get people to open up about their fears about Election Day.

Some responses are using humor to relay the message of anxiety.


Humor or backup plan?

Other people are unfiltered about how terrified they truly are.


Sometimes one hashtag is all you need.

Looks like the white name mentality is a common theme.


Jorge = George. Guillermo = William. Pedro = Peter. Etc.

Many are exhausted after watching two people argue over your fate and well-being in this country for months.


No energy left.

There are people that just can’t believe that it’s already decision time.


Fiiiiinally!

People who are protected are worried about family and friends.


Answers to the tweet are covering all the different emotions in the human spectrum.


@Deyaaaniraa we promise you’re not the only one.

Some people are legit looking up what it would mean if they’re forced to go back to their countries of origin.


Imagine spending your life in one country then being told you have to go back to a country you do not know.

Stress. Stress. Stress.


Breathe. Just breathe.

Then there are emotions that just can’t be put into conventional words.


Existential crisis is right.

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

A massive protest movement that swept across Colombia seems to have paid off – at least in the short term – as President Ivan Duque says that he will withdrawal the controversial tax plan that sent angry protesters into the streets. However, the protests claimed at least 17 victims who died during the unrest and hundreds more were injured.

Now that the president has withdrawn the controverial bill, many are wondering what’s next and will they have to take to the streets once again.

Massive protests claimed the lives of at least 17 people and hundreds more were injured across Colombia.

Unions and other groups kicked off marches on Wednesday to demand the government of President Ivan Duque withdraw a controversial tax plan that they say unfairly targets the most vulnerable Colombians.

Isolated vandalism, clashes between police and protesters and road blockades occurred in several cities on Saturday, and riot police were deployed in the capital.

Rights organization Human Rights Watch said it had received reports of possible police abuse in Cali, and local human rights groups alleged up to 17 deaths occurred.

After a week of protests, the government has shelved the controversial plan.

Faced with the unrest, the government of President Ivan Duque on Sunday ordered the proposal be withdrawn from Congress where it was being debated. In a televised statement, he said his government would work to produce new proposals and seek consensus with other parties and organizations.

President Duque, in his statement, acknowledged “it is a moment for the protection of the most vulnerable, an invitation to build and not to hate and destroy”.

“It is a moment for all of us to work together without paltriness,” he added. “A path of consensus, of clear perceptions. And it gives us the opportunity to say clearly that there will be no increase in VAT for goods and services.”

The tax reform had been heavily criticized for punishing the middle classes at a time of economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The government introduced the bill on April 15 as a means of financing public spending. The aim was to generate $6.3 billion between 2022 and 2031 to reignite the fourth largest economy in Latin America.
