Fred takes us right down to the nitty-gritty of the tensions building in Bolivia - largely due to not very well disguised US nodding and winking to right wing crypto-fascist organisations working as a catspaw to US corporate interests.
The recent meeting of ALBA - a Latin American entity of nations finally making an attempt to break free of US hegemony - has announced its support for the Bolivian government. The US is making blatant attempts to undermine the fledgeling government. But will it work this time, as it has in the past? Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says no, and his voice is a visionary voice backed with oil resources that puts his vision outside and beyond the limitations and imaginative backwardness of corporate USA - and includes the real struggle against planetary climate change.
