Lost A Full Day of Preparation on Friday

September 10, 2006

A province-wide work strike in protest of some government policies succeeded in stopping all traffic and business in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for a full day on Friday. The streets of Santa Cruz were empty until 6pm (I didnt see any of the fighting that the below article refers to  – in fact, I saw probably only 10 people in the street at all until late afternoon). Needless to say, with our FEXPO launch preparation and web design work being done in Santa Cruz, the strike hit our preparations for the website and launch pretty hard at a fairly crucial point. 

 I tend to stay out of politics so here’s a link to the BBC article on the strike: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/5328900.stm
