From Dec. 3 to 5 in Tijuana, Mexico — just minutes from the San Diego, Calif., airport — a cross-section of workers from Latin America who are confronting the global crisis will meet with U.S. workers grappling with devastating challenges.

We support Bolivia's declaration of the U.S. Ambassador Phillip Goldberg as a persona non grata, and we protest U.S. involvement in Bolivia and its efforts to undermine and subvert the process of change in Bolivia that will benefit the sectors of its population that have been most oppressed, the Indigenous and Afro-Bolivian peoples. ...
With little more than a month past since Bolivian President Evo Morales won a recall referendum with 67% of the vote, Bolivia's secessionist opposition has taken to the streets beginning in Santa Cruz, one of the wealthiest regions of the country.
