Dr Jeffery Webber, The rise and fall of Latin America’s ‘Pink Tide’
10 April 2017
Dr Jeffery Webber discusses with Pacifica Radio about the rise and current crisis of Latin America’s parliamentary left and centre-left. In the early 2000s, left and centre left governments came to power across Latin America in countries such as Bolivia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, and Ecuador — ushered in on a wave of resistance to neoliberal policies. The so-called Pink Tide provided much needed inspiration to leftists around the world, but things haven’t turned out so well, suggests Pacifica Radio.
