Bolivia

26 people die after the military in Bolivia fire on demonstrators. This brings the death toll to 40 in three weeks.

The population is protesting against the export of gas to the USA via Chile. They want Bolivian resources to benefit the people of Bolivia. The USA backed government has overseen the privatisation of the country's utilities with subsequent price rises that have hit the poor. Most of the money leaves the country.
