Protest #3: March 26th, 2012 – Feeling Lost.
This was a story and picture I originally posted on Cowbird.com, where it was featured as a story of the day (and well received).
Protests, frequently being a family affair in Bolivia, sometimes also include children who become separated from their mothers. All this poor child could say was that he was from El Alto, and so it was up to the riot police to find his parents. For the longest time, I alternated between crying and laughing whenever I saw this picture–his face spoke of this enormous personal tragedy occurring on a minor scale in the universe.
