UN: Pando was a massacre. Period

From an ABI article kindly translated by Bina.

According to Denis Racicot, United Nations High Commission on Human Rights, the events of September 11th, 2008 "were a massacre committed by functionaries of the Prefecture of Pando and persons allied with that institution."


IHT covers the story for English readers. Their opening paragraph:

The United Nations' human rights arm issued a report Wednesday finding that opponents of Bolivian President Evo Morales were responsible for some of the Andean country's worst human rights violations last year.

You think Eliza Barclay has heard about this? Or about that radio hatemonger Carlos Valverde Barberí? Otto has got a message for shit journalists like Eliza.

I think now is a good time for those who defended Eliza's work in the Atlantic to reflect on exactly what they are defending. It is certainly not informed public debate.
