room for palliris
Explanation:
For the women working as 'palliris' in the silver mines of Cerro Rico de Potosi, Bolivia, conditions are formidable. ''The palliris are women who manually pick out muck or mine waste,'' explains a paper written by the organisation, Centro Promocion Minera in Bolivia. ''These women work under unhealthy conditions 4,000 metres above sea level at the low temperatures in the dry, windy environment of the Andes. In 1996, Conception Mining Company blasted the palliris' work site in order to open a road. Hundreds of palliris declared a state of emergency and climbed to the top of the mountain.''
