From the BBC we learn that Bolivian President Morales had to flee a public event this week due to protests from local miners over food prices. The emphasis here is that the miners were using dynamite to make their point. According to the BBC:
Setting off dynamite is a common feature of trade union protests in Bolivia, where the explosive is widely available to miners, but injuries are rare.
In some ways this harkens back to labor history in the United States, though from my sources I don’t believe it would come close to being called a common feature. Mostly I’m reminded of Pynchon’s character Webb Traverse from Against the Day. That said, let’s hope injuries stay rare.
