- WHAT: Watch the Bolivian Documentary ‘Death Before Slavery’
Join us in watching a 50 min. Bolivian documentary called Death Before Slavery (details below). We will watch the movie together – with popcorn! – and then sort donated surplus medical supplies for an hour while we talk it over and digest the information together. Anyone who would like to bring any snacks is more than welcome!
“Death Before Slavery” is an analysis of the events that culminated in the 2005 resignation of Bolivian President Carlos Mesa. “…death before slavery” is the last sentence in the Bolivian National anthem. It was often chanted by the thousands of demonstrators who paralyzed Bolivia in May of 2005. The documentary offers a perspective not present in other media. It offers its view directly from the people of Bolivia through interviews with grassroots leaders, local journalists, congressional advisers, politicians, and average Bolivian citizens.
