Evo Morales and the Rights of Mother Earth

By:

I lived in Bolivia for about 9 months in 1991, in a small town near Vinto.

Vinto is the place where, a couple of week ago, a mob of thugs dragged the mayor, Patricia Arce, out of her office, cut all her hair off, drenched her in red paint and shoved her barefoot through the streets, before forcing her to kneel and sign a paper of resignation.

She remained defiant.

Her offense: support of President Evo Morales.
