Passing this along
This is to alert everybody that the former president of Bolivia, Gonzalo
Sanchez de Lozada, is speaking at Harvard on Saturday the 7th. De Lozada
is wanted in Bolivia for ordering the massacre of 87 protesters in 2003.
The US government refuses to extradite him and he currently lives in DC.
This Thursday at 7pm at the Lucy Parsons Center there will be a screening
of a documentary about de Lozada and the massacre. It would be great if
people could come to this and stick around for a planning meeting

The Bolivian government requested Mr. Sánchez
de Lozada's extradition from the United States in
November, 2008. He presided over several of the
worst massacres in Bolivia's recent history. These
include the “Gas Wars” he initiated and during
which his security forces massacred scores of
people and injured hundreds of others.
Their families demand justice.
To his dreadful record, we must also add the
destructions of the Bolivian economy as he
pushed for the privatization of gas lines, imposed
austerity and opened the economy to corporate
He should be returned to Bolivia in order to
answer the charges against him in a fair and
open judicial proceeding.
Harvard's fêting of Sánchez de Lozada
represents a gross indifference to human rights
violations in Bolivia.
