The Americas - Protests against the U.S. business initiated trade agreements CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement) and the FTAA (Free Trade Agreement of the Americas) took place in both San Salvador, El Salvador and Bogota, Colombia. Salvadoran protesters who have been demonstrating regularly throughout the past week clashed with police. Anarchists attacked police with iron bars and rocks before being fired on with rubber bullets. Venezuela also saw anti-FTAA protests earlier in the week.
