Coca and the Congressman [electronic resource]: Drugs, Farming, and Socialism in Bolivia

The rise of leftist leaders in South America has surprised the international community-and has resulted in some equally surprising alliances. This Wide Angle documentary focuses on populist leader Evo Morales, who has taken up the fight of coca farmers against the Bolivian establishment. Traveling to the stunning highlands of Bolivia, the program examines Morales' efforts to expand the amount of coca that can be legally grown and fend off the Bolivian military's drive to eliminate the crop. The program also profiles indigenous politicians working with Morales, a farming family dependent on coca for survival, and a coca-eradication commander on a slash-and-burn mission. In addition, Minister Jorge Castaneda discusses the power shift in Latin America with anchor Mishal Husain.
