Skype phone interview, variable sound quality. Fred (Frederico) Fuentes, based in Latin America talks about the recent referendum in Bolivia, called by the first elected indigenous president, Evo Morales. In spite of right wing calls to challenge the political empowerment of this man (with threats to secede from the central government and form 'autonomous' states) the referendum actually strengthened the position of a President who is introducing moderate reforms that act to phase out the negative influence of multi-national corporations and global privatisation. On the situation in Bolivia, Fred looks at the role of the military, which after several hundred years of dominating the politics of countries like Bolivia seems to be changing with a new era of social reform.
