Latin Pulse focuses on the weakness of some democracies in Latin America this week with a special program devoted to how constitutions are being bent to the will of some powerful forces. The program discusses what are called "express coups" and the details of controversial governmental change in Paraguay and Honduras. The program also looks at the judicial crisis in El Salvador which some characterized as a constitutional crisis. The news segment of the program covers the Caravan for Peace that wound its way from Tijuana to Washington, D.C., lobbying for policy changes in the Drug War.
