it's a 99% certainty that you don't have a clue about what this photo really means.
Have a nice day.
1) Unions grab the mikes early morning, and say turnout is near 100%. TV cameras capture row after row of jam packed full buses behind shoulder of triumphant union leader.
2) Government holds early morning press conference, laughing at the poor strike turnout. Union leader suddenly looks stupid.
3) Bus drivers strike as from 10am after they've collected their prime early morning commuter fares. City grinds to a halt for 6 hours and gov't spokesman suddenly looks stupid.
4) Buses suddenly all go back to work the very same moment all the workers leave their offices.
5) Big noisy demo by people wearing same coloured things and carrying same coloured flags. Fireworks. Police watch on bemusedly and think how they're getting double wages for this.
6) Provinces much harder hit. South and Central/East Peru closed down. Rocks litter the streets, and militants throw stones at taxis.
7) Police and army kosh a few communists round the head for fun. Two or three end up in hospital.
8) All round the tourist circuit (namely Islas Ballesta - Nazca Lines - Arequipa/Colca Canyon - Lake Titicaca - Cuzco/Macchu Pichu) bands of whining gringos ask the same "When can we move to our next destination?" question to tour guides blessed with saint-like patience, while the rest of the group tut tut about how it isn't the same at home and "why should they be complaining when we come over and spend all our money here?" and various other classic, predictable and moronic trains of thought.
9) At nightfall, the President issues a statement saying that "the people have spoken and voiced their discontent. It is our job as a gov't to heed this voice" or some such shit.
10) Next morning everybody goes back to work. Nothing changes. Absolutely nothing. See photo.
