One Family's Return Trip: Plaza Bolívar North Side
In Bogotá, one of the acts of defiance on April 9 was the burning of the Palacio of Justicia. The building was completely destroyed and the lot remained in ruins often serving as a parking lot until the 1960's, when a new building was errected.
That building was destroyed in November 1985. In an event known as the Toma del Palacio de Justicia (The Taking of the Palace of Justice). Again, this topic deserves its own post, but here is a brief summary.
On November 6 of 1985, a guerilla group known as the M-19 (Movimiento 19 de Abril) sent comandos to take over the Palacio de Justica. They took 350 hostages. They wanted to judge the President Belisario Betancur for curruption and the army's Human Rights abuses. The President refused to negotiate and his communications officer, Noemí Sanín, fearing destabilization, ordered a soccer game be broadcast instead of coverage of the event.
