Bolivia's Internet at a Snail's Pace

Digital activists in Cochabamba, Bolivia took to the streets on Saturday May 3, dressed as snails [es] to represent the slow Internet speeds faced by users across the country. The grassroots movement “Más y Mejor Internet Para Bolivia” [es] (More and Better Internet for Bolivia) has been calling for lower prices, faster speeds, and better coverage from all of the telecommunications companies. Follow the protest at the hashtag #OpBabosa [Operation Snail] and in this Storify compilation [es].

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
