For the past week, Medea Benjamin has been in Bolivia at the request of local activists, who are panicked about the situation in their country, afraid that things are spiraling out of control. They are engaging in peaceful protests to reverse the coup that happened November 10th, but the protests have been met with tear gas and even live ammunition. Unfortunately, mainstream media and even some progressive outlets are refusing to recognize that what happened a week ago was a coup and are not covering the coup regime’s racism and violence. This is why it’s important for us to bring you news live from Bolivia. Scroll down to learn more and don’t forget to sign our latest petition on Bolivia.
