Bolivian coup leader Camacho Washington DC protest

Fascist Bolivian coup leader fails in DC charm offensive

On Red Lines, Anya Parampil covers the obliteration of Bolivian coup leader Luis Fernando Camacho’s big event in Washington, where he was auditioning for US support at the Inter-American Dialogue think tank.

Camacho, a far-right candidate in Bolivia’s forthcoming presidential election, had hoped to present himself as a unifying figure. But at the December 12 event in DC, he was instead met with ferocious resistance by Bolivians and US anti-war protesters who denounced his fascist past.
