Quotes

In June, UNESCO added Potosí to its World Heritage in Danger list because of "continued and uncontrolled mining operations in the Cerro Rico mountain that risk degrading the site."
"Total collapse is possible," Espinoza said then . "We hope that this does not happen in Cerro Rico."
" The use of the word 'witch' derives from the Spanish colonization ," the artists explained in an interview with Hot Shoe International. "And from the Catholic Church in which men communicate with the divine through intermediates: With God through a Priest and the Church, and with the Devil through witches and witchcraft. However the Altiplanic belief system is much more complex, not conforming to such a black/white dichotomy. For them the mortal world is porous."
...Morales, anticipating a contentious campaign, appealed to MAS supporters for restraint, saying "I ask you all not to enter into a dirty war." ( La Razón , July 17; Los Tiempos , July 16; EFE , July 15; The Guardian , July 14)
