A video of the riots in Sucre

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

A while ago I blogged about the disturbances in Sucre. Today I found a video on YouTube that was filmed while they were taking place.

It’s a strange feeling to see fights and smoke in streets that are familiar to me!

Bolivia: the next Kosovo?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

You might think that the headline is a little over the top, or at least you are hopefully thinking “perish the thought!”

But actually, the ideas is not as far off as it may seem, as this report shows.

Apparently the U.S. sees Bolivia as a possible country to be split up into it’s regional areas – just as Serbia and Kosovo were split last week.  And why?  Allegedly because the U.S. does not agree with the current politics of the Bolivian Government.

I think that this is a pretty scary thought.  Whatever you feelings may be towards or against the Bolivian Government and its President, should a foreign power really be pursuing such a policy?

Have they considered the damage, that this could do to the people of Bolivia?
