There have been violent clashes in the Bolivian capital La Paz between wokers and police.
The country’s largest trade union has been on strike since May 6 to demand improvements for worker’s pensions to 100% of final salary from the current 70%. The president has offered 81%, and is accusing the strikers of trying to provoke the anti-riot police to mutiny and overthrow the government.
