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.
