Bolivian women stand amid a blockade road in Melga, near Cochabamba, March 14, 2005. Indian protesters scattered boulders across roads, worried that Mesa's plans to open Bolivia's energy sector to more foreign investment will loot the Andean country's natural wealth with no benefit for them. The blockades, which have effectively cut the country in half, are preventing many goods from Bolivia's eastern agricultural heartland from reaching either the highland capital or Pacific ports for export.
