Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton report from La Paz, Bolivia, where we observed the historic landslide victory of the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party of former President Evo Morales.

We speak with human rights lawyer Thomas Becker about the horrific crimes and repression of the coup regime that has ruled Bolivia since the military overthrew Evo in November 2019.

We also discuss the deep colonial racism of the Bolivian right-wing, and the power of social movements and indigenous resistance against authoritarianism and imperialism.
