Ka-boom in Bolivia

There's been this rumbling strike by a local mining co-operative group in Potosí Bolivia for the last 17 days which I've watched without mentioning (basically because Bolivia isn't the place for foreign investment or even speculation in mining companies, even at the best of times). But as the meeting to try and reach a solution between the workers and ten government ministers was suddenly evacuated this lunchtime because the protesting strikers outside the building where the meeting took place started throwing dynamite sticks at the place and causing mayhem, (yes, real ones, that exploded) I thought I'd give it a headsup today.

Because they blowed up real good.
