The Bolivian constitution has passed the referendum. “The constitution, which was written in a constituent assembly that first convened in August of 2006, grants unprecedented rights to Bolivia’s indigenous majority, establishes broader access to basic services, education and healthcare and expands the role of the state in the management of natural resources and the economy.”
In celebrating the constitution, Evo Morales said, “…I want you to know something, the colonial state ends here. Internal colonialism and external colonialism ends here. Sisters and brothers, neoliberalism ends here too.”
AH, what beautiful words! May they spread. May we say it here as well!
(and, take that Thatcher for foolishly saying there is no alternative to capitalism. There are alternatives.)
