"Untie the colony to built the plurinational", says a phrase included in the invitation for a third conference being developed since three months ago within a process of "retrieval of the ideological identity of indigenous movements and leaders".
Last January 25th, more than 51% of the population in Bolivia approved the new Political Constitution which recognizes all the indigenous peoples and afrobolivians. As part of the process of deep changes being held in this country, it was created a Decolonization Viceministry, leaded by an indigenous historian and an afrobolivian woman as one Director of this State office.
According to the invitation, this event will take place July 31, at 18:30 at the Vicepresidency Hall, at Mercado Street in La Paz, Bolivia.

At Blogher Conference 2009

After some hours of travel from El Alto, La Paz, Bolivia I arrived to Chicago where officially another version of BlogHer Conference will be held July 24 and 25th. The whole program promises to be an opportunity to learn a lot about blogging. I am expecting not only to meet the other people who will participate in the BlogHer Scholarship Winners, but also to meet other bloggers that are arriving to this event.

Last days La Paz, Bolivia has been celebrating 200 years of the independence, 1809-2009. However, something important to say is that indigenous peoples were not even allowed to enter the main square of La Paz, Murillo´s Square, during some decades of the Republic. However, along the time, indigenous peoples have been gaining positions in different levels.
