Bolivians protest road construction

Indigenous Bolivians set off on a month-long march to La Paz to protest plans to build a road through the Amazon reserve



    Hundreds of indigenous people in Bolivia have kicked off a 580km march from the Amazon region to the seat of government in La Paz.

    The protest adds to a string of others confronting the president for his continued support of a construction project that will see a road built through the Amazon reserve.
