Lucha Libre

A wrestler lays on the ground after being defeated in a "Lucha Libre" or freedom wrestling match May 29, 2005 in El Alto, Bolivia. The matches are hugely popular in El Alto, a politically charged and impoverished city that is the epicenter in the current crisis facing Bolivia. The matches often use allegory and tradition, including woman in Indian dress, to comment on good versus evil, a popular theme in impoverished Bolivia.
