Word Up From Naomi Klein NoLogo "In recent weeks,
there has been a severe crackdown on activists (reclassified as "terrorists") in Bolivia and Oscar Olivera has been arrested. This was a big mistake: Olivera has friends around the world and they will be bombarding the authorities with calls for the political charges to be dropped."
Olivera is best known for leading the successful campaign of the Bolivian people to protect their water supply from privatization by the faceless multinational Bechtel. Time for us all to show our solidarity, details will follow shortly.
