President Gustavo Petro a few days ago he served three months at the helm of the country and despite the fact that the Historical Pact and the government parties are happy with the progress he has made so far, such as the tax reform, the policy of Total Peace, the resumption international relations with Venezuela, among others, the opposition has taken a dim view of some of these actions, which is why they have taken to the streets three times to demonstrate.

The former presidential candidate of the National Salvation Movement, Enrique Gómez, has been one of the political leaders who has criticized and questioned President Gustavo Petro the most, which is why he has invited people to participate in the different social demonstrations against the government of the current president, however, a recent message on his social networks made him a target of criticism.

After the different marches against the government of Gustavo Petro, now Gómez expressed the option of calling a national strike, this in order to demonstrate the annoyance and nonconformity that various sectors of society have with the president. For the leader of the National Salvation Movement, this is what will happen after the mobilizations.

“And of course yes, after the mobilizations there should be a National Strike”,affirmed Enrique Gómez on his social networks.

This message was not well received by some users on social networks who were against this possibility and responded to Gómez's call.“What mobilizations are you talking about, old man… Hahahaha”; “And this is supposed to be opposition? I see in his trills nothing more than someone trying to bully someone he doesn't like… I see nothing of valid reasons and options to build”; “The pro-productivity inciting to stop the national productive apparatus, which we have to see in this banana plantation.”

However, this has not been the only time that the opposition mentions the possibility of a national strike, since a few days ago the businessman, spokesman for the recall against Mayor Daniel Quintero and one of the organizers of the march, Andrés Rodríguez, affirmed that, “we have to take action and take the regional protest to the capital. Either the reforms fall, or we will continue to set the scene for the protests until we go on a national strike”
