ARAUCA, Colombia, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- About 2,000 protesters in northeastern Colombia clashed with police after protesters blocked the entrance to four oil fields in Arauca, officials said.

Protester blocked the oil fields over alleged neglect at the hands of the Colombian government and the multinational oil companies in the region, Colombia Reports said.

"The people want social investment, like healthcare, education and the creation of jobs," said journalist Emiro Goyeneche, who was at the protest.

Violence between protesters and police has been ongoing since Tuesday, Goyeneche said.
