Bolivia: Second Protest March Against Tipnis Reaches La Paz


Read More

The proposal to drive a road through the indigenous area and national park known as TIPNIS was a watershed for many supporters of the ‘change process’ in Bolivia proclaimed by President Evo Morales, especially when the police used violent measures against the first protest march in September 2011. The government initially gave way, but subsequently announced a “consultation” over the proposal. The second protest march, which left TIPNIS in April, has just reached Bolivia’s capital. Darío Kenner analyses the situation. His blog also has valuable links to other analyses of Bolivia.
