On Wednesday, March 3 at 7:00 pm

Since Luis Arce became president on November 2020 the country is faced with a “double crisis” of COVID-19 and economic recession, exacerbated by the failed and, what some local activists call, the “genocidal” policies of the coup government. Join us to learn about Bolivia’s struggle to recover from the nightmare of the November 2019 coup as well as discuss recent regional political events.

Speakers

  • Adriana Guzman Arroyo is a leader of the Anti-Patriarchal Communitarian Feminism in Bolivia. She will speak with us from La Paz.
  • Leonardo Flores is a Latin American policy expert and campaigner with CodePink.

Moderator

Kevin Young, Professor of History at UMASS Amherst. He is the author of the book “Blood of the Earth: Resource Nationalism, Revolution, and Empire in Bolivia” (2017)
