Opponents announce blockades in Bolivia
Opposition groups announced the closure of borders and the shutdown of state departments in Bolivia.
These new measures are in addition to the strike that has gripped several cities in the country for the past 13 days.
This decision follows the ultimatum given to Bolivian President Evo Morales two days ago to resign from his post.
Luis Fernando Camacho, leader of both initiatives, said the blockades will be carried out peacefully but firmly.
He also pledged not to interfere with international airports, essential basic services, and medical emergencies.
Massive protest movements began throughout Bolivia after the victory of leftist Evo Morales in an election fraught with irregularities.

All those present pledged to prevent the Organization of American States (OAS) Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance of going into effect to fight against Maduro.
"El Chapo" Guzman's son arrested at US request
Mexico confirmed that the brief arrest of the son of drug trafficker Joaquin Chapo Guzman was due to a U.S. campaign against fentanyl.
Wanted for trafficking the deadly opioid, Mexico detained Ovidio Guzman after the United States requested his extradition.
Later, in a strange turn of events, Mexican forces decided to release him, declaring that they felt overwhelmed.
Ovidio, now free, has been accused by a U.S. court of conspiring to traffic narcotics.
Since his father was extradited in 2017 to stand trial for drug trafficking, Ovidio's role in the Sinaloa cartel has not stopped growing.
