where did you get that last bit from?They ran for it then later returned, the following order was to shoot the lot !
If I understand the story correctly, before the CV lockdown, a slump was bulldozed by the authorities, making those who lived there homeless. When the curfew came, they took to the streets to protest. Police came and dealt with them in their usual heavy handed way but it wasn't about feeding. The local issues are many: poverty, joblessness, drug, local insurgency, lack of social security and healthcare.
But order to shoot the lot?
