Just Cause - Free Spirits

  • Whatsapp

"Just Cause", hosted by Colombian human rights advocate Piedad Córdoba, offers a series of documentaries on Latin American economic, political and social realities. Today's program, "Free Spirits", deals with the decolonization process in Bolivia. But decolonization, not just in the political sense of national independence from colonial rule, but also in terms of people's thinking. In other words, independence from a system of thought that, perhaps less obviously and more beneath the surface, has kept the oppressed and exploited in a subservient status for centuries. Until now. Under Evo Morales all this is changing as the indigenous population, women, workers, and peasants of Bolivia are taking their destiny in their own hands, changing society and changing themselves in the process. teleSUR
