Chew On This

During the 2004 Narco News School of Authentic Journalism in Bolivia, the school’s video team produced this report on the struggle of traditional coca growers in the Chapare region. Coca growers organized against DEA sponsored coca eradication programs, building a strong political organization in the process. The school professor in the video, Evo Morales, then a coca growers’ union leader, went on to become president of Bolivia.
