A group of protesters covered Patricia Arce, the mayor of the small town of Vinto, in paint, dragged her through the streets barefoot, cut her hair, and forced her to sign a letter of resignation, according to local news and witness reports.
The mob accused her of organizing a pro-government crowd to break up a blockade set up by opposition demonstrators after the country’s presidential election on October 20, an incident which resulted in the death of an anti-government protester.
