Caption

A group of landless citizens camps out on the cold, desolate altiplano of Bolivia to protest a new land reallocation policy. Protesters endured harsh winter conditions of down to 15 degrees below zero to make their voices heard. After several weeks, violence errupted when the police tried to crack down on the protest. Protesters killed at least one police officer.
