Protesters Demand Greater Government Accountability and Public Investment; Bolivia, July 2015

Protesters from Potosi, Bolivia demonstrate in support of a civic committee that is seeking to negotiate an end to a 10-day-old general strike in the city, which is a provincial capital.

Potosi depends heavily on mining and its residents have been hit hard by a slump in mineral prices.

The demonstrators are demanding the central government put more money into public works projects, calling for the construction of hospitals, roads and an international airport to be built in their region as part of a 26-point plan for the government.
