Categories: Latin America, Bolivia, Breaking News, Environment, Ethnicity & Race, Indigenous, Protest

Over 500 members from Bolivian Indigenous organisations gathered in Trinidad, approximately 600 kilometres from La Paz, and began on April 27, 2012, at 8 pm (GMT) a march to Bolivia's Seat of Government for the second time. They are opposing Bolivia's governmental plan to built a road that would cut off right through the middle the Indigenous Territory and National Park Isiboro Sécure [1] (TIPNIS for its initials in Spanish). Real-time reporting is available on Fundación Tierra website [2] [es] and also the hashtag #TIPNIS [3] on Twitter.
