José Cruz Campagnoli, ex-legislator for the Ciy of Buenos Aires government and president of its comision for human rights, will be discussing the current political situation in Argentina and across the region based on first hand experience. Specifically, he argues that the progressive cycle of governments, commonly know as the "pink tide" is, far from being over, currently in a phase of dispute with as of yet unresolved outcomes.
Amancay Colque, longstanding Bolivian activist and teacher, and founder of the Bolivia Solidarity Campaign (UK), will in turn provide up-to-date information of the government of Evo Morales which appears to be one of the few progressive governments still standing in the region.
The talks will be followed by an open debate and discussion hosted by the Queen Mary Latin American network.
