A fast food restaurant is a place to eat, but fast food is also a place of privilege, as many Colombians know all too well.
The problem is that while many Colombian families may have the freedom to eat what they want, many Colombians don’t.
As one Colombian woman said in an interview with MSNBC: “I know I can’t eat my favourite fast food because the boss will not let me, the mother will not allow me, because she doesn’t want to see me suffer.”
The fast food industry has become a major source of poverty and insecurity in Colombia, as well as the most lucrative source of revenue for organized crime.
Many Colombians who struggle to afford fast food are forced to sell their produce to the fast food chain in order to survive.
But the industry has grown to become so lucrative, that the Colombian government is now trying to curb its dominance by taxing it.
This year, Colombia introduced a new tax on fast food restaurants, called the food industry levy, which will raise up to 3 percent from the retail price of every restaurant meal in the country.
This is one of the few measures that is making it possible for people to eat their own food, even in fast food outlets.
The tax, which was announced in April, was the first time the Colombian authorities have attempted to directly tax a fast food business.
Critics of the tax say that it is a tax that will harm the poor, especially the young, who may not have the financial means to afford the higher prices.
The levy was introduced as part of a government-wide effort to combat the “poverty of the poor” as it comes under the responsibility of the National Food Program.
It is the first of its kind in Colombia and will be part of the government’s next round of budget cuts.
The Colombian government argues that the levy is needed to support the food security of the population.
However, the food tax is not a new idea, and has been proposed before.
In the 1980s, a similar tax was proposed by the Colombian state.
However, the idea was rejected by the Congress, who said it was a tax to pay for the war.
Another way the tax has been raised in the past was through an amendment to Colombia’s tax law in the late 1990s.
According to Colombian economist Juan Luis García, this amendment has raised the prices of many Colombian products to the point that many people are forced into selling their produce.
In the 1990s, this was a big problem for the Colombian economy.
In 2001, the Colombian food and food products export to the US fell by more than 40 percent and, according to the International Monetary Fund, Colombian exports to the United States fell by nearly 50 percent.
So when the Colombian president announced that the country would levy a tax on all fast food chains, many were worried.
“It’s very hard for me to live in a country that taxes you when you have to pay,” a young Colombian woman who was recently asked to sign a document said to MSNBC.
One Colombian man said he thought the government was “doing a good thing for us”, but that the tax would only bring the food out of the family budget.
“This is a very small price to pay.
This [tax] is a small price that you can afford,” he said.
“I’m not going to sell my food because I can get [the price] from the state.
If it goes up, I will be forced to eat the cheapest food.”
Fast food chains have also become an easy target for anti-hunger activists and politicians.
Activists have often criticized the Colombian governments food tax and the government has responded with a variety of measures to counter their criticism.
Among the most popular are increased taxes on sugar imports and increased taxes imposed on imported rice and meat.
These measures are part of an attempt to curb the demand for food.
At the same time, the government is also targeting the country’s largest fast food operators.
When the Colombian National Bank imposed a new bank levy on fast-food outlets in May, the bank also increased the prices charged by the restaurants, leading many of the fast-casual chains to cut their prices to pay the new taxes.
Fast-food workers and activists have also been calling for an increase in minimum wage to as high as 50 pesos per hour, but Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has insisted that the minimum wage will not increase.
Meanwhile, the economy has been hit by a wave of food insecurity, which is affecting the poor most of all.
On the night of May 18, the country was rocked by a massive earthquake that killed nearly 500 people and injured more than 6,000.
Since then, the number of people in need of emergency food has increased by 30 percent.
In May, nearly 1.5 million Colombians were living in poverty.
Despite the economic problems that
