Rolling riots gather no moss

Here is something you don't see every day.

Wheelchair bound protesters / rioters in Bolivia.  Met by riot police and tear gas.

Bolivia's Wheelchair Riots (hat tip: MR).

for more pictures.

Bolivia is supposed to be working itself toward some sort of socialist paradise last I checked.  I guess a little more work is needed.

It does say something that a wheelchair bound person can riot though. I mean if you think about it.

Yes, and they look very angry.

Without knowing the details of the situation, it says something about Bolivian culture that their reaction to a planned rally by handicapped people is to bring out the the riot police.
