Travel Photo of the Day: Human Rights March, La Paz, Bolivia
This photo was taken in October 2007 in the capital city of La Paz, Bolivia, on the day of a Human Rights March. Marchers were protesting the lack of human rights and safety, low wages, violence and political corruption in the country. We hadn't realized that the march was scheduled for that day and found ourselves caught up in the rush of the crowd. Luis took this photo as we were marching toward Plaza Murillo to protest in front of the National Congress of Bolivia building. Although the speeches by human rights leaders were fiery and passionate, the crowd remained calm and focused on its purpose.
