TIPNIS quick November 2011, UPDATE

The fight over their land is far from over. They succeeded in the approval of a short law that states the road will not cross the TIPNIS, however they are facing now more Machiavellian threats. For more detail on those threats, you can read articles written by Humberto Vacaflor (today) and Susana Seleme (will appear tomorrow), translated in this blog.

Despite those obscure threats, let’s not forget and commend this brave people. Let’s be positive, in this beautiful and shiny Sunday in beautiful Santa Cruz!

Let’s remember them as this cartoon that appeared in La Prensa on October 30, 2011. As they started their rightful protest and as they returned back home, victorious, with pride, with gifts and more importantly with Bolivian love!
