Terra Verde:”The Price of Fire” – An interview with Ben Dangl

Before Seattle, there was Chochabamba: A small city in the Andean highlands brought to a grinding hault by protests over water privatization. On one side: The World Bank, and Bechtel, Inc., two of the world's largest transnational institutions. On the other: Thousands of the rural poor and indigenous, fighting for their survival, and creating new ways of organizing in the process. Brian Edwards-Tiekert interviews author Ben Dangl about Bolivia's resource wars, and what they've meant for globalization and the Latin American left.
