Dear Friends:

A web site is now up and running with information, images and analysis of the "Water War" in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

Massive popular struggle have just ousted the Bechtel affiliate that had bought the water system, in a privatization program pushed by the World Bank and corruply implemtend by the Bolivian government. This is a very important, though still vulnerable, victory against the forces of neo-liberal globalziation.

Please go to:


... and click on Bolivian Water War under "What's Hot"

Many thanks to the good people at the Resource Center of the Americas for their swift help in launching the site.
