Thousands of people both for and against Bolivia's President Evo Morales marched Tuesday on the streets of La Paz. Anti-Morales protesters marched in support of their candidates, Carlos Mesa and Luis Fernando Camacho, claiming Morales stole the Oct. 20 election and committed electoral fraud. Morales supporters marched as well and heard him speak, calling for Bolivian "unity." Opponents challenge an official count that showed Morales winning with 47% of the vote and a margin of just over 10 percentage points over his nearest competitor - enough to avoid the need for a runoff against a united opposition.
