Camera operator threatened during protest at border
Ramírez told Fundamedios that this happened in the afternoon while he was covering a roadblock by residents of San Agustín. One of them forbade the journalist from filming while he was walking among their houses. When Ramírez continued working, the man insulted him and took out a firearm, threatening to shoot him if he did not leave.
Ramírez commented that he had no choice but to leave the area. Fifteen minutes later there was a confrontation between the locals and the police, who were attempting to clear the road that runs through the area.
