I am a Bolivian researcher, lecturer and blogger based in Latvia. I am focus on political communication and the coca issue in the Andean region. I also follow closely issues like ICT4D, new media and political participation, urban identities and street art.
My blog offers a view of all of the above, mainly in Spanish. You can look at my post in English and/or follow me on Twitter (@payorivero).
I enjoy photography a lot and use Free Software as much as I can.

A wave of protests are sweeping across Bolivia, affecting at least six of the largest regions of the country. Although conflicts are not initially linked to each other, they have generated a climate of political instability, raising challenging questions for the government of Evo Morales. Netizens share videos, reports, and reactions to these protests.
A proposed road project in Bolivia that plans to cross right through the middle of the Indigenous Territory and National Park Isiboro Sécure (TIPNIS for its initials in Spanish) is once again generating conflict. Indigenous organisations insist on their right to be consulted about policies concerning their territories.
