The Intercept

July 23rd 2020

This week on System Update, Glenn Greenwald hosts an in-depth exploration of the 2019 military coup that toppled Bolivia's democratically elected President Evo Morales, the ongoing repression there, and what it reveals about US propaganda. We speak with Bolivia-based activist Kathryn Ledebur, director of the Andean Information Network, about the situation on the ground, and from Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic & Policy Research, about the role of the OAS in legitimizing the coup.
