"I have no idea what's happening."

Take cover and let us know when you find out what the deal is.

Can you give a little background? I for one am not really aware of the current political situation in Bolivia.

It ain't a revolution if there's still Internet access.

All the same, stay safe and be well.

"I started to hear what I think was gunfire and cannon fire"

You THINK it was cannon fire?

If its not clear, its probably just large
fireworks or grenades. Cannons have a very
distinctive incomming sound.

Wasn't Bolivia involved in a referendum to throw out foreign oil companies? I think the opposition there had threatened to take over the coutry and drive out all foreign investment.

Stay safe and stay under cover.

Get in the car and begin traveling in a Northern Direction. Stop when you see Bush/Cheney signs.

Guns and S. America is never a good combination.

There was a peaceful march earlier today by indigenous people today demanding a fair share of the country's oil and gas wealth. I know know if this has anything to do with it.

Isn't Uruguay playing Bolivia in the Soccer World Cup in La paz tonight? Perhaps it's just a celebration and you heard fireworks. Or police dispursing soccer hooligans.

Keep your eyes and ears open and your head down when necessary. And for heaven's sake, evacuate your position if it gets tense.

We can read reports from elsewhere if this is big.

Take care, FRiend!

LA PAZ, Bolivia, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Bolivia's Congress gave the Supreme Court the green light on Thursday to investigate and possibly sentence ex-President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada over deaths during clashes between the army and protesters last year.

Sanchez de Lozada, a center-right leader now living in the United States, was forced out of office a year ago by the massive protests against his policies of opening up the economy of Bolivia, one of Latin America's poorest countries.

An estimated 67 people died and 200 were injured in protests by farmers, unemployed miners, and coca growers. The demonstrators also opposed a government natural gas export plan they said would benefit Bolivia's estranged neighbor Chile.

Demonstrators gathered on Thursday to celebrate outside Congress after both houses of Congress voted jointly to approve the trial. Of 130 deputies and 27 senators, 126 lawmakers voted in favor. Fifteen members of Sanchez de Lozada's cabinet will also go before the high court.

Thousands of other marchers were heading to La Paz to join demonstrations planned for Friday.

Yes I know he's American, but it may not be the best time for CH to let anyone nearby know that.
