The BBC Covers Amazonian Coca

In this (archived, not live) article on the BBC website, their Amazon correspondent Bruce Parry writes in great detail about the Andean Cocalero scene, the struggles of the Ashaninka people, the Shining Path, and many other Coca-related topics.

He takes a close, BBC-style look at the profound impact of US-sponsored “Drug Wars” on the indigenous peoples of the Coca-producing regions of the Andes and Amazon.

There are also lots of links to interesting, relevant videos. It will be worth your time to browse this article and its links.
