If you live in the United States you'd be forgiven for missing the story.

To find out what's currently happening in Bolivia, check out the story on nacla.org, which provides the basic information and some background on the right wing attempts to over throw the democratically elected Evo Morales.

Portside also carried a couple short pieces about how the other left-leaning governments in the region are all coming to the aid of Evo Morales.

Update (2008/09/15): Looks like the mainstream press is starting to cover the events in Bolivia. There's a Newsweek article reprinted on Portside and a reasonable NY Times article.

Update (2008/10/02): Thanks Jeff for the link to the Democracy Center coverage.
