Bolivians “abandoned” by coup government as COVID-19 spreads

Red Lines host Anya Parampil speaks with Bolivian journalist Ollie Vargas to get an update on the situation in Bolivia.

The military dictatorship has done little to aid the country’s working class as coronavirus spreads. Meanwhile Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), the party of ousted President Evo Morales, is trying to respond to the nation’s health crisis on a local level. Elections in the country have been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
