 Print news - IPS Inter Press Service
Dozens of Guaraní, who live in the southern departments of Tarija and Chuquisaca, and in the southeastern Santa Cruz, led a silent mobilisation last week, an event that was far from the mass media spotlight.
During the wars for independence from the Spanish Crown, the Guaraní were able to consolidate their territories in the new republic of Bolivia, but the Europeans who had settled in the country isolated them, relegating the Indians to less fertile lands and, in many cases, subjected them to servitude bordering on slavery.
Expert on indigenous issues Acebey says the Guaraní mobilisation is not connected to the Aymara protests in the west, also characterised by their radical opposition to natural gas exports, although the two indigenous cultures share the ideals of defending natural resources and land to be run by community organisations.
