Argentina. Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia. All over South America, it seems that left of centre governments are losing their grip on the popular imaginations of their people.
Do these developments signal the left's fall from grace on the continent?
This week's Global Research News Hour focuses on South American politics, partcularly the gains and losses of the Left of Centre political parties and movements.
In the first interview, prominent commentator, and award-winning author, Professor James Petras outlines the background that led to this situation and the efforts needed moving forward to preserve the gains of the left.
A Bolivian activist, Sara Paulina Jauregui, joins us next to talk about why many Bolivians rejected the constitutional changes championed in a referendum recently.
The show concludes with a return appearance by John Ahniwanika Schertow, editor and founder of Intercontinental Cry. He talks about the ways these leftist governments have failed Indigenous peoples, even comparing the Morales Government at one point to the government of former Conservative Canadian Prime MInister Stephen Harper!
