Today’s road blockade in Santa Cruz – UPDATE

After ten hours, road transit was restored from Santa Cruz city to Camiri; Samaipata – Cochabamba (old road).  Citizens from La Guardia and surroundings were asking Mario Subirana to resign, as an apparent alliance with current political party in government and for “betraying” elected Mayor, Jorge ‘Chichino” Morales. The Mayor considered by some in-country and international donors as the best Mayor in service. Since the blockade was lifted, as a result of police intervention, citizens stated that unless Subirana resigns, they will continue with this kind of pressures… time will tell. So far, businesses and free transit through La Guardia was affected this M0nday, June 27 .
