Bolivia: spliting into two camps

As usual, MABB has an informative analysis of the situation in Bolivia, where 4 of the 9 departments have elected to reject the new constitution if the Constituent Assembly revokes the 2/3 majority rule.  Governments and opposition forces have had some violent confrontations, resulting in almost 70 people wounded during one altercation.

In Santa Cruz city, groups of opposition supporters have burned
offices, roughed-up government supporters. At the same time, groups of
government supporters have also attacked their counterparts. In Sucre,
while a group of church supporters gathered to pray and government
supporters handed out leaflets against the Archbishop of Sucre,
tensions broke down into violent acts.
