ABYA YALA DOCUMENTARY DISCUSSION UNI OF SUSSEX ALEX TILLY

The Bolivia Inform­a­tion Forum char­ity vis­ited Uni­ver­sity of Sus­sex cam­pus this month to screen the doc­u­ment­ary ‘Abya Yala: This Land is Ours’. The film is a fas­cin­at­ing look at the social and indi­gen­ous move­ments behind Bolivian Pres­id­ent Evo Mor­ales and the “Move­ment Towards Social­ism” party, fol­low­ing the story of his elec­tion. This is a really inter­est­ing time to find out more about Bolivia, as Evo Mor­ales is the first pres­id­ent from the indi­gen­ous population. The film was followed by a talk from Alex Tilley (Coordin­ator of the Bolivia Inform­a­tion Forum). The BIF pro­duces a reg­u­lar bul­letin which is writ­ten by experts in Bolivia and in the UK and also includes fre­quent guest con­tri­bu­tions from prac­ti­tion­ers and report­ers on devel­op­ment and human rights issues.
