Blogging the Colombia-Ecuador Fracas

| 3/6/2008 2:58:29 PM

News of the diplomatic crisis unfolding in northern South America has been buried by an increasingly tiresome slew of Obama-vs.-Clinton headlines. The savvy bloggers at the Latin Americanist have been posting frequent updates about the Colombia-Ecuador dispute, and as a bonus, they’re also presenting a series of fascinating, moving films on the historical impact of some of the region’s guerrilla and paramilitary groups.

There’s a new clip every day this week (each is about ten minutes long), and those posted so far focus on Peru’s Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path), the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance (Triple A), and Chile’s Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front. (Heads-up: Non-Spanish speakers, you'll be limited to the Triple A film, which is the only one with subtitles.)
