Bolivian Indians marching against president
Friday, October 17, 2003

Indian leaders in Bolivia are leading protests against President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada in what has become a violent and deadly battle with the nation's government.

Emo Morales is a popular Indian leader who almost beat Lozada in the recent election. He is leading the call for Lozada to resign.

Indigenous groups, farmers and workers have been setting up roadblocks and protests in the past three weeks, according to the Associated Press. About 65 people, mostly Indians, have died in clashes with the police and the military.
