Army has been using airplanes and helicopters to intimidate this Cochabamba area's residents.
Bolivia's Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) leader Efrain Chambi Saturday asked the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the Ombudsman's Office to intercede immediately in the conflicts in K'ara K'ara zone, in Cochabamba.
"Social problems on K'ara K'ara can be solved through dialogue. We condemn all acts of repression," Chambi said.
The Senator also denounced the existence of citizens who have been infiltrating the demonstrations to generate violence.
K'ara K'ara residents suffered Bolivia's Army intimidation, which deployed forces, and used airplanes, and helicopters in the area.
Basic services such as access to water were cut off in an area that held Cochabamba´s main garbage dump.
Saturday afternoon, police members and army elements began an attack with tear gas and bullets against the garbage collectors, who are maintaining a blockade in the area.
