Program Title: Month of Fury: Latin America Rises up Against Neoliberalism

From the uprisings in Ecuador to the demonstrations in Chile to the elections in Bolivia, Argentina and Uruguay, tis week's show probes the popular actions against austerity, privatization and other neoliberal policies across South America. Professor Michel Chossudovsky provides a historical context to last month's eruptions, including a recounting of his own recollections from having lived through the 70s era coups in Chile and Argentina. Next up, Pepe Escobar shares his understanding of the geopolitical dimensions of the current uprisings, and why he sees the recent Argentine election in particular as a political game changer. Finally, John Ahniwanika Schertow of Intercontinental Cry examines the role of Indigenous peoples and Indigenous struggle in the modern resistance against the neoliberal project.
