This week, Latin Pulse focuses on the presidential elections and debate over indigenous rights in Bolivia. Evo Morales, Bolivia's popular president runs for a third term in office against Samuel Doria Medina. If Morales wins a third term, what will that mean for diplomacy with the United States? The latter half of the program reflects on the emergence of indigenous rights in Bolivia and how that runs against the trend of suppression of indigenous political power. The news segment covers the disappearance of students in Mexico and the controversy it has caused.
