Bolivia: Indigenous Groups to March to La Paz in Protest of New Road

As Eduardo Avila recently reported for Global Voices, the Bolivian government announced “a controversial project to build a new road that would go through the Indigenous Territory National Park Isiboro Sécure (TIPNIS for its initials in Spanish).” Emily Achtenberg in the NACLA blog now reports that “on August 15, representatives of three indigenous groups and their supporters will begin a 970-mile trek from Trinidad in the Bolivian lowlands to the highland capital of La Paz” to protest this project.
