The Latin American Revolution, Part 2: The Indigenous Revolution

Bolivians have elected Latin America’s first indigenous President, Evo Morales who has brought profound social changes to his country. This episode describes the Bolivian Revolution. With President Evo Morales, Cynthia Cisneros, Rosemary Irusta, Sabina Gonzalez and Tomas Huanacu.


Notes: With 10 left-wing governments in power today in Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Cuba, Latin America is leading the world in implementing progressive social change. This is happening not just within countries, but also on a continental level. Demonized by the North American mainstream media, a revolution is taking place in Latin America as many governments reject U.S. imperialist domination and neoliberalism in favour of socialism, social democracy and regional integration.

From the 1950s to the 1990s, the U.S. subjected Latin America to 18 military dictatorships and neoliberalism. The dictatorships killed about one million people and neoliberalism impoverished many countries. The Latin American Revolution is the people’s answer to these U.S. imperial strategies. This remarkable process is the culmination of decades of struggle by political parties and social and guerrilla movements inspired by both Latin America’s liberator Simon Bolivar and its best-known revolutionary, Che Guevara.
