Bolivia: Disabled Protesters vs. Riot Police 2012-02-23


From: http://www.buzzfeed.com/gavon/disabled-protesters-vs-riot-police

These photos are unreal. A protest in Bolivia demanding rights for the disabled turned violent yesterday as hundreds of people in wheelchairs and crutches clashed with riot police.

A group of disabled people march in a protest demanding state benefits and an end to discrimination as they journey to La Paz, Bolivia, Sunday Feb. 19, 2012. The group began their 560-mile march from Trinidad to La Paz on Nov. 15 to ask for a law that gives the disabled population special recognition and administers a yearly allowance of 3,000 bolivianos, or about 430 U.S. dollars.
