Watched some TV news today at tia Lilia's house before lunch. The autopista (the route to the airport in El Alto) was blocked this morning. It was a protest by rural teachers. The residents of El Alto seemed uninterested, so the protesters began throwing rocks at house windows, cars, even people. A real mess. The police stepped in — after the government announced it wouldn't allow such bloqueos — and gassed the bloqueadores, then arrested 68 of them (one of the few times anti-bloqueo laws were enforced). Just a note of caution to anyone hoping to fly in/out of La Paz in the upcoming days: check to make sure you can.

Also, Mesa's announcing what the questions of the gas referendum will be. Should be a speech sometime tonight. Some analysts have predicted that the questions may decide his government's fate.
