Bolivia efter Che
Jan Lindqvist

Bolivia after Che shows how the progressive aims of a military coup in Bolivia after the murder of Che Guevara are met by the United States of America by selling the U.S. strategic reserves of tin on the world market, thereby lowering the prize of Bolivias main export article, tin.

As a result , the government soon falls. The film contains extensive social material from the tin mines, as well as on the struggle of the union leaders from the mining fields.
