BOLIVIA : Road Access To La Paz...Blocked By Miners.


      For several days...hundreds of angry miners have successfully blocked all highway access into the capital of La Paz.
     They have used boulders and poles to litter the 3 main highways into the city.
     They want to run a part of the Colquiri tin and zinc mine expropriated by President Evo Morales in June. 
     No police or troops have yet been mobilized to remove the protesters.
