Bolivian Anarchism and Indigenous Resistance: Interview with Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui
III_Cumbre__final_.jpgThe South American nation of Bolivia has filled the headlines of the global press with their fight against water privatization, struggle for nationalization of gas, non-compliance with free trade policies, and the election of South America’s first indigenous president, Evo Morales. These struggles are rooted in the long history of indigenous resistance to colonialism and imperialism in Bolivia.
