We begin with News of the Americas and an interview with awarded filmmaker Tupac Mauricio Saavedra discussing his campaign trail film "ON THE ROAD with Evo": an intimate and public glimpse of Evo Morales, the Bolivian president. We celebrate the release of Piri Thomas’s new book, and hear the reflections of the US ex-political prisoner, the Puerto Rican independista, Rudolfo Matos, and the passionate music of Lila Downs, followed by a first hand-account of the events in front of the Mexican consulate in San Francisco yesterday. We close with a calendario of local Latino cultural events. Produced by Maya Orozco and Nina Serrano.
