The Latin American Revolution, Part 2 of 4
by Asad Ismi and Kristin Schwartz
Robbed and pillaged by European and US imperialists for 500 years, Bolivia is still South America's richest country with its poorest people. In 2005 the nation's indigenous majority elected a socialist government under one of their own, President Evo Morales, promising to use the nation's resources to bring education, health care, sustainable development to its people, and pursuing a policy of regional cooperation with Venezuela, Cuba, Brazil and other neighbors. In this second installment of the 4 part radio documentary, Asad Ismi and Kristin Schwartz explain how Bolivia, its leaders and their government have earned a place on Uncle Sam's hit list by beginning to extract their country and their region from U.S. domination.
