Road blockade solved!

Fortunately for the elder who were marching towards La Paz, they reached an agreement with the government and will receive a 6.5% increase in their pensions. Yesterday afternoon they decided not only to walk to La Paz on the road from Oruro but blockade it as well. They were marching at over 13 thousand feet above sea level, and with extreme cold temperatures in the Bolivian highlands. The group represented over 122,000 retired people. Inflation in the last twelve months reached 11% and in for food was 18%.
