La Bolivie au quotidien.


Héctor Mediavilla

BOLIVIAN DAILY LIFE. Since the beginning of his government, Evo morales has been critized by different sectors of the complex Bolivian society. Civic Comitees from Santa Cruz that cry for Autonomy, miners union traders, students associations or coca leaf peasants often make their reivindications demonstrating in the streets or cutting roads traffic. In this country where interests and needs of its inhabitants are so different the social and territorial fracture seems evident.
