Hell on the Home Front, Part 2
In this week's New Times, you can read my update about the Bolivian victims of a 2003 conflict now known as Octubre Negro.
More than 60 mostly indigenous protesters and bystanders died when the government called the military on demonstrators. Then, Bolivia's president and defense minister fled to Miami.
Today, there's an ongoing civil suit in Miami federal court brought by the families of some of the victims aganist Gonzalo "Goni" Sánchez de Lozada and Carlos Sánchez Berzaín, the two former leaders now living in American exile.
I traveled to Bolivia in December, thanks in no small part to a World Affairs Journalism Fellowship directed by the International Center for Journalists and funded by the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.
In Warisata, a small town about an hour and a half outside the capital of La Paz, I met with Etelvina Ramos Mamani, one of the plaintiffs in the suit.
Check out the video above, edited by Jacob Katel, for a behind-the-scenes look as Etelvina describes how her 8-year-old daughter Marlene died during the conflict.
