Bolivia: Protesters cut off mayor’s hair, cover her in red paint and drag her through the streets


Anti-government protesters have reportedly attacked a mayor from a small Bolivian town, covering her in red paint and cutting her hair.

Patricia Arce, a member of the ruling Mas party, was dragged barefoot through the streets by demonstrators before being taken away by the police.

The Vinto mayor was also forced to sign a resignation letter and the town hall was set on fire, according to the BBC.

Crowds were blocking a bridge near Vinto, a town in the Cochabamba department which has seen demonstrations since the disputed presidential election on 20 October.

After hearing rumours two anti-government protesters had been killed nearby, a crowd marched to the town hall, Los Tiempos newspaper reported.

They got hold of the mayor, dragged her through the streets and attacked her while shouting “murderer”, according to reports.

One of the rumoured deaths was later confirmed, the BBC said.

Limbert Guzman, a 20-year-old student, is the third person to die following street clashes between supporters of the Bolivian president Evo Morales and opposition protesters.

Mr Morales called the young man an “innocent victim of violence provoked by political groups encouraging racial hatred amongst our Bolivian brothers” on Twitter.

International governments have called for calm and are backing an audit of the election by the Organisation of American States (OAS), which has recommended that a second round vote go ahead. Mr Morales has agreed the audit will be “binding.”

The OAS has called for calm while it completes its audit.

Since the vote, cities have gone into lockdown, with daily marches and road blocks.

A Bolivian protest leader who has become a symbol of opposition to President Evo Morales has arrived in the nation’s capital, La Paz, where he plans to formally demand the leftist leader step down after a contentious election last month.

Luis Fernando Camacho, a civic leader from Santa Cruz, plans to march to the presidential palace with a pre-written letter of resignation for Mr Morales to sign.

See its not that fucking hard. If you really believe your elected leaders are corrupt, if you really believe they only serve their own interests. Then you have every right to do ^ that and there isn't much anyone can do about it. You don't need to go and kill people, or form some elaborate plans. Just a big enough group of people and just enough force to get the point across. Sign the the resignation letter and get the fuck out of town... who is next?

Do that ONCE and I guarantee you the rest of those corrupt bastards will shit themselves. Politicians are like bad children, they need a good beating once in a while to remind them who is in charge.

Its infuriates me how simple it all really is and yet how complicated its made out to be. In your personal life you would never let someone rob you blind in front of your eyes and then make a fool of you on top of it. So why would you tolerate it from some random politicians. Especially when the numbers are always in your favor?

They had ethnic Albanians killing their own people and didn't do anything to them (other than swearing them in as leaders of the nation) much less doing anything to a Macedonian (no matter how loose the term is used here).

As Joker said, "you get what you deserve".
