A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
Guerreros del Arcoiris (Rainbow Warriors)
With a report on the recent elections and continuing struggle in Bolivia.
Guerreros del Arcoiris documents the struggle in Bolivia that erupted in Dec. 2007 around the vote of Constituent Assembly on the new Constitution. The majority population supports the Morales government while the minority oligarchy want to retain control. Through violence and intimidation, the rich landowners and corporate owners try to undermine the process with U.S. backing and rally support for secession of the resource-rich areas of Bolivia.
The film show the process of real change where for the first time in Bolivia’s history, Indigenous people are granted rights under the Constitution. Guerreros del Arcoiris shows the two forces that exist in Bolivia, the majority fighting for revolutionary change and the reactionary minority, that can’t accept that history has changed. 2008, 54min.
