A group of protesters in wheelchairs who gathered in La Paz to demand legal recognition of disability along with monetary benefits were met by a line of riot cops with shields and batons and gas. The photos of the ensuing violence are shocking. The demonstrators had been on the road since Nov 15, and they reached the capital on Feb 19.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
