2007 Constituent Assembly & International Media Monitoring Initiative

After more than a year of legislative debate, Bolivia ’s Constituent Assembly is finally set to announce its results. Upon widespread demands of the nation’s social organizations, assembly delegates assumed the responsibility to refound Bolivia ’s democracy and eliminate discrimination against the nation’s indigenous population.

The political democracy in Bolivia began its transformation with the election of the nation’s first indigenous president, Evo Morales, in December 2005. Almost two years later, Bolivia continues on this path as the nation’s Constituent Assembly completes its work to draft a new constitution and reform the nation’s political, economic and social balance.

This December, again at the behest of socialists around the world, Digital Warrior Media will join Center for a New American Socialist Democracy (CNASD) to dispatch media staff to observe, monitor & report on the status of the democratic constitutional transition taking place in Bolivia .

From November 28th to December 18th, 2007 , Digital Warrior Media will be on the ground to monitor the new version of social democracy at work in Bolivia . Via an on-line web-blog, radio production, and news articles, Digital Warrior Media will produce detailed & comprehensive reports for release on “Wakeup Call with Mario Murillo”. Wakeup Call is New York City’s most socially progressive on-air morning drive time programming on WBAI (99.5FM) of the Pacifica Radio Network.

Staff will travel to Bolivia ’s capital cities of La Paz and Sucre to identify, research and report on a range of issues including: indigenous peoples’ representation within the Constituent Assembly, labor rights, & ultimately the portrayal of the constitutional convention within Western mainstream media.

Digital Warrior & CNASD will continue accruing interviews & video footage for the documentary “Political Inca” - a conversation where the rise of indigenous socialism in Bolivia is examined through the use of new media.
