Live streams last night were plentiful, though I called it a night before seeing anything kick off. Tons of people in the streets.

From what I could tell, most of the worst violence seems to be taking place around Cali although some in Bogota also. Apparently the tipping point was an announced nation wide tax hike and govt austerity measures that went over like a turd in the punchbowl with a populace thats still reeling from pandemic caused unemployment, shortages, deaths, etc..

Oh yes. The tax hike.
I read about that two days ago.

That's not the only issue. There are alot of local issues that are creeping out and now are exasperated with COVID. IMO alot of it may be coming from Venezuela, given that FARC is back.

Well, apparently the reaction has caused the govt to walk back the tax hike for now, but to your point, yeah, sounds like a convergence of many aggravating factors causing the unrest...probably long term for alot of it. Its summer again, it'll be hot, people are already struggling and have pent up frustration....it gets ugly.

Wouldn't surprise me a bit if much of the world loses its crap this summer.

I foresee a lot of South/Central American countries having serious civil unrest in the near future. Failed socialist states, corruption, drug cartel violence, and poor economic conditions all exaggerated by covid and goaded on by countries wanting to stir up trouble in the USA's back yard. Expect more actual refugees mixed in with the imported gimme-dats.
