    But I think the point here is that the Bolivians no longer actually own the rights to the gas, and despite a possibly fair royalty payment, they lost power over their indigenous resource by the hand of upper class US sympathizing presidents and legislatures. The people want control of their resources back!

    •  Do they have the ability to exploit it? (none)
      I know little about Bolivia so I don't know the answer to this - but it's something to keep in mind. Not all of the foreign investement in LatAm is just the US imperialism taking advantage of others.

      Sure, one can never discard that (especially given past experiences) - I do have to say that I read "Enron" and I cringe .
