On 9 November 2021, demonstrators clashed with police officers in several departments during the second day of a nationwide strike initiated by labor unions to protest new legislation critics claim centralizes power with the ruling Movement for Socialism party. In Potosí, the capital of southwestern Potosí department, police officers deployed tear gas to disperse demonstrators blocking roads near Potosí’s city-center. More than 50 people were injured in clashes between law enforcement and protesters, including two who remain in intensive care. Police officers also responded to protesters in the departments of Beni, Cochabamba, La Paz, Oruro, Santa Cruz de la Sierra and Tarija. During similar demonstrations on 8 November authorities arrested 125 people. Travelers in the affected areas should plan on significant transportation delays, as additional protests are planned for 10 November.
