The US-Supported Coup in Bolivia: Revealing and Tragic – System Update with Glenn Greenwald
We, in S.A. already knew there was a Coup in Bolivia last year – but what are the details, specifics, reasons, players and ultimate outcome? Here we will get some of that .. the indigenous people of Bolivia – the primary count of the populace of Bolivia – have been and now are being further isolated from controlling the destiny of their own country!! In the recent past I spent 10 weeks in Bolivia in many cities not just La Paz – which I still think is the most strikingly beautiful city in the world – and learned what is really unfolding there and meeting the local people in discussion.
This week on System Update, Glenn Greenwald hosts an in-depth exploration of the 2019 military coup that toppled Bolivia’s democratically elected President Evo Morales, the ongoing repression there, and what it reveals about US propaganda. We speak with Bolivia-based activist Kathryn Ledebur, director of the Andean Information Network, about the situation on the ground, and from Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic & Policy Research, about the role of the OAS in legitimizing the coup.
