Lithium is the lightest metal on the periodic table. It’s value has been multiplied by 10 in the last two decades alone. And it’s demand doesn’t stop growing. Between 60 and 80% of the world’s known reserves are in an area called the LITHIUM TRIANGLE. This is an area that covers parts of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile. In these countries, lithium is abundant and easy to extract. In other words, this part of the planet might soon become the new Saudi Arabia. Despite these reserves Bolivia is exporting less lithium than the other two countries. So what’s going on in Bolivia? Why is no one exploiting their lithium resources? And why is Chile following suit? Today, we are going to answer all of those questions.

Bolivia has lost its legal battle at The Hague to force Chile to give it access to the Pacific Ocean. Both nations' leaders travelled to The Netherlands for a hearing at the International Court of Justice. Landlocked Bolivia lost its coastline to Chile in a war 135 years ago. It does not look like it will be getting it back any time soon, although Bolivian President Evo Morales has vowed that his country will never stop fighting for access to the sea.

What are Evo Morales plans if he keeps his crown and what do the Bolivian people really think of him? Since becoming South America's first indigenous president in 2006, Morales and his party, the Movement for Socialism (MAS), has striven to give more power to the country's indigenous and poor communities. But not everyone is in favour of the reigning President. "He has only increased the divisions in this country. Now we have a war between the classes. Divide and reign, as Machiavelli used to say. That is exactly what Morales is doing, dividing the country into two." Now it's time to go to the ballots.

In Bolivia, much of the heavy work is carried on small shoulders. Children work jobs from construction to mining, work on the streets as vendors and are often an important source of income for families struggling to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. At 16, Ivan Padilla works at a brick factory outside La Paz for a simple reason. "Only because I help my family. And also I can get my own school supplies." The owner of the factory says the kids work because high unemployment and the low number of jobs means that even working parents can't make ends meet. So, a child working can help keep the family fed. Thirteen-year-old Julio Cesar stacks bricks and cleans up broken ones. "I am working to help mother, it's that her hands are hurt. It helps my family a little to work." International experts estimate about one-in-four of all kids in Bolivia is engaged in some kind of labor. And Bolivia's Congress last week passed legislation to allow children as young age 10 to work as long as it does not interfere with their education and is done independently to help the child's family make ends meet. The legislation otherwise lowers the legal working age to 12 - again, as long the job does not interfere with the child's education. Senator Adolfo Mendoza, of the ruling Movement to Socialism party says the new law is intended to help families economically, while protecting children. "In the case of those boys and girls, the adolescents, who are hired in certain types of work, under certain conditions with safety and preventive measures, they will be able to do it, in exceptional cases, as an employee, from the age of 12," he said. And he says it would only be in very limited circumstances where the youngest of children could be employed. "In those cases where they are working for themselves, where the business depends on the boy or girl's work - for example, a candy seller. In these cases, the exception starts at 10 years of age." On the streets of La Paz, it is easy to find children at work. Elena sells corn for people to feed the birds in a large plaza. "I don't think children should work. But for me, it's OK. I am big," says the 14-year-old. Some worry that expanding the ability to work could end up hurting children, but say there aren't many good options for helping families. "The law - almost as it is, if it's not revised, if it's not reviewed, it could weaken the rights of children of that age and under. Why? Because reality puts them in that situation. With a law or without, the reality pushes children to go into the streets and look for some kind of work that lets them make a minimum contribution to sustenance of their families." A regional official with the U.N. International Labor Organization, Carmen Moreno, says the legislation would make Bolivia the first country to make work by 10-year-olds legal. Moreno called the legislation worrisome considering that Bolivia is a signatory a U.N. convention that sets 14 as the minimum age for child labour. In Bolivia there are 850,000 working children and adolescents between 5 and 17 years in various work activities, and over 87% are engaged in the worst forms of labor. Some 354,000 work in urban areas and 446,000 in rural areas, according to official statistics.

Child labour was legalised in Bolivia in 2014, not to protect or promote it but to accept a reality and to try to regulate the conditions under which the children work. The measure was condemned both at home and abroad.

beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat.

http://moneyandtech.com/June-19-news-update/ Japan's ruling political party, The Liberal Democratic Party, announced in a committee meeting today that the country does not plan to regulate Bitcoin for the time being. A more definitive final decision will be made after hearing "more opinions" on the matter, according to party lawmaker Takuya Hirai. Commenting on this news, regulation expert Juan Llanos told CoinTelegraph, "It's surprising and rather encouraging to see a country take a hands-off stance even when the most prominent bitcoin exchange has failed on its own soil... The effect of this could be very beneficial for this emerging technology and for the country, as it will spur innovation." You can also watch our recent interview with Juan to hear his thoughts on Bitcoin regulation and compliance around the world. And the Central Bank of Bolivia recently released an official ban on any and all currencies and coins not issued or regulated by states, countries or economic areas, which includes Bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies such as Namecoin, Peercoin, and Feathercoin. This is the first announcement by the country's central bank on the subject of digital currency, and the first one in the world to officially and completely ban these digital currencies. The announcement goes on to explain that this decision is intended "to ensure the stability of the domestic purchasing power," which has recently been taking a hit due to hyperinflation. Major Bitcoin payments processor BitPay has announced a new partnership with political services platform CoinVox to make it even easier for political candidates, political action committees and political organizations to accept bitcoin donations, while still remaining compliant with current campaign finance regulations. CoinVox CEO Christopher David explains that "Some of BitPay's first customers were political candidates and a national party... With their extensive experience in dealing with political contributions, partnering with BitPay was the best option for CoinVox." Digital gift card provider Gyft updated its iOS app today to add in the bitcoin payments option that Apple had not permitted until recently when updating their App Store Review Guidelines. Fellow gift card company eGifter did the same on Tuesday, likewise enabling bitcoin payments on their iOS app. This also comes shortly after other Bitcoin apps CoinJar and Coin Pocket returned to the Apple app store. And on Wednesday, Blockchain CEO Nic Cary also tweeted that the Blockchain wallet app may soon return to iOS as well. The quest for a standard Bitcoin symbol continues as the Bitcoin Foundation forms a Standards Committee to drive the process of creating and adopting a new Unicode Bitcoin symbol. The Foundation's new Standards Committee will be tasked with looking at all the existing options, assessing and putting them up for vote, in order to decide on one final version, which will then need to be added to the Unicode Character Database. Award-winning director Adam Cornelius and This American Life contributor Chris Higgins are hoping to produce the first feature-length cryptocurrency documentary that takes an in-depth look at alt coins, particularly Dogecoin. The pair have launched a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $72,000 to fund the remainder of their filming and complete their documentary. As Higgins puts it, "We went to Kickstarter because we want to build a community around this film, much like the communities that form around altcoins themselves." We spoke recently with 500 Startups Venture Partner Sean Percival, who talked about his incubator's growing focus on companies that are building on the Bitcoin technology, particularly around infrastructure and user onboarding.

By day, Peruvian police and soldiers search for and destroy equipment used by illegal gold miners in a part of the Amazon rainforest where mining has transformed once-dense foliage into a desert pocked with dead trees and toxic pools. As night falls, they play cards and soccer, call family from their remote outpost or have a medic pluck burrowing parasites from their feet. For a decade, a gold rush accelerated in Peru's Tambopata province, a center for an illicit activity that is among the most lucrative, and destructive, in the Amazonian wilderness. Security forces came and went; miners scattered and returned. Then Peru announced something different: It installed long-term military bases in hopes of curbing not just illegal mining but also human trafficking and other associated crimes. "Operation Mercury" began in February when authorities evicted thousands of illegal gold miners from the area and deployed hundreds of police and soldiers for the long term, lodging them in some cases in the same makeshift quarters once used by gold dealers. The men in uniform regularly patrol in vehicles and on motorcycles, though some miners emerge at night and there are concerns that others will wait for the military presence to subside, or simply relocate to more remote areas. "As many miners tell me, these interventions just push miners into areas further and further into the rainforest, because they want to prevent being caught," said Jimena Diaz Leiva, a PhD student at the University of California, Berkeley who has studied the illegal industry. She also said the small-scale miners feel ignored and vilified by a government that they say has shown little interest in their economic wellbeing and whose initiatives to bring them into the legal mining industry have not been effective. What is certain is the devastation left behind — partly because of the mercury used to separate gold from debris during excavation. Tens of thousands of acres (hectares) of rainforest have been destroyed. "The damage to nature here is so terrible that all the water is poisoned," said Maj. Gustavo Cerdeña, head of a police unit. Cerdeña said he had come to the area before the law enforcement operation began in February, posing as a gold buyer in order to gather intelligence on the criminal syndicate dominating the illegal trade. "It was full of people. It was like Gomorrah before it rained fire," he said, referring to the biblical city's destruction. "Now everything is quieter." The area known as "La Pampa," which surrounds a national park and doesn't appear on state maps, has yielded roughly 25 tons of illegally mined gold a year, much more than the output of Yanacocha, Peru's most productive legal gold mine, according to the Peruvian government. Peru is the No. 1 producer of gold in Latin America. It is a pattern being repeated to varying degrees elsewhere in the Amazon, including in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil.

Some have debts, their parents don't work... they go to work to help their families." The change came after children led a protest demanding their right to work.

Spanish/Nat Some twenty per cent of miners in Bolivia are children. They work in small-scale mines that belong to whoever wants to exploit them, often in dangerous conditions. With mining having the highest fatality rate of any workplace anywhere, children are increasingly taking the place of older miners who are being killed weekly. For Elvis the working day starts at dawn when he walks to the mine that employs him. In Potosi, Bolivia, thousands of children and teenagers like him go underground every day to earn a living for themselves and their families. For little more than 100 U-S dollars a month, these boys do work that would break the back of many adults. Small-scale mining is particularly dangerous both in terms of accidents and health risks because it is largely unregulated. There is very little surveillance of people's health and by the time they get ill, either from having lung problems like silicosis or being contaminated or poisoned by mercury, it is often too late to do anything. With such a high fatality rate, children are often forced to take over from their parents. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "My father can't work and I'm the only one old enough to do the job." SUPER CAPTION: Elvis Yujra, miner Centuries ago, Spanish rulers built an empire from minerals extracted from these narrow shafts as native and African slaves dragged out cart loads of silver under barbaric conditions. Today the mines belong to anyone willing to work them, and the conditions have not changed. In 1985, the Bolivian government closed the mines because they were no longer profitable. As many as 30-thousand miners were sacked but some returned to the mines. Today, many mines in Bolivia are run as small cooperatives by families who can rarely afford the safer modern technology used in larger mining operations. For generations there has been almost no alternative work here. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "What are people going to do? Mining is the only available job. Normally, students come straight to the mine" SUPER CAPTION: Carlos Miranda, miner Precious metals are mined at a very high price in human life. Because they are so unregulated, fatality rates in small-scale mines can be up to 90 times higher than mines in industrialised countries. Many deaths are caused by explosions and extreme temperatures. Exhaustion and poor ventilation also exact a high toll. Thousands of children and women work in these mines exposed to the most intolerable conditions. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "The weights they have to lift, the inhospitable places they work in where there are poisonous gases present a high health risk for children and teenagers. We've also got to note that this job, as well as the risks I've just pointed out, demands the handling of dynamite that, due to the lack of experience they have, can leave them maimed or even kill them." SUPER CAPTION: Wilma Velasco, UNICEF representative A 1999 report by the International Labour Organisation (I-L-O) claims small-scale mining is expanding rapidly and often uncontrollably around the world. And Latin America is no exception with unregulated mining leading to hundreds of work-related illnesses and accidents every year.

More films about Child Labour: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/child-labour/?page=1 While most countries have been trying to eradicate child labour, Bolivia ended up becoming the first nation in the world to legalise it. In 2013, the country’s government announced its intention to set the minimum working age at 14, protect the rights and safety of working children, and phase out child labour completely by 2019. However, during the parliamentary debate, child workers took to the streets of La Paz and clashed with police to protect their ability to support their families. In the end, the new labour code passed in 2014 made it legal for kids as young as 10 to work. Bolivia’s children’s unions are pushing for the legal working age to be decreased even further. RTD went to Bolivia to see how this law is being enforced and if the child workers are happy with the rights they’ve struggled for.

Leonardo Rodríguez, partner at Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal, talks about the advantages of investing in the Lithium Mining Industry in Argentina. During the past decade, the lithium industry has registered an upward trend. For a number of reasons, including the fact that it is the lightest metal, lithium is considered one of the most important minerals worldwide. Latin American countries have one of the biggest reserves of this mineral in the world. In fact, Argentina, Bolivia and Chile represent the so-called “lithium triangle”, which are home to almost two thirds of global lithium reserves. The market for lithium has been particularly lively and active transactions in Argentina have led to a boom in the last two years. Leonardo Rodríguez, partner at the law firm Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal, describes in detail the growth of the lithium industry in Argentina and explains why it has become one of the most attractive sectors for investment in the country.

Clashes broke out in Cochabamba in western Bolivia Monday, May 28, over both a block in funding and the death of a student in a protest last week. It was unclear how many were injured during the latest confrontation between the protesters and police. The latest violence began when protesters gathered at government offices being guarded by riot police. Students have been marching for more than two weeks in El Alto and La Paz. The Public University of El Alto has 43,000 active students, the majority of whom are in financial need. Bolivian President, Evo Morales, currently aspiring to a fourth term in office, chalked the violence up to to an attempt to overthrow him.

More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

http://www.pbs.org/commandingheights Bolivia 1982-1984: The political arena is characterized by infighting and corruption. The international recession and domestic fiscal mismanagement put the Bolivian economy in a state of crisis. The government prints money, fueling inflation. Per capita income falls below 1965 levels, with more than half the labor force employed in the informal sector. Paz Estenssoro is elected president again. 1985-1988: Shifting his focus away from the center left that elected him, Paz Estenssoro institutes a drastic New Economic Policy that liberalizes trade, deregulates the financial sector, privatizes some state enterprises, and implements tax-reform law. These "shock therapy" measures succeed in reducing record inflation and bringing about slow but steady economic growth. Success comes at a high social cost. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/commandingheights/lo/countries/bo/bo_overview.html

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez holding Bolivian baby STORYLINE: President Evo Morales appointed a Marxist journalist to drive Bolivia's energy policy and a street protest leader to lead the new Ministry of Water on Monday as he announced his 16-member cabinet - a mix of Indians, middle-class intellectuals and union leaders that should keep some of his toughest potential critics inside his camp. Morales won the presidency by a landslide after promising to bring the poor Andean nation's natural resources under state control, fight corruption and end centuries-long discrimination against the Indian majority. Before his cabinet was sworn in, he reminded them of their citizens' high expectations. "I want to ask you personally that this government have zero corruption, zero bureaucracy," Morales said. The appointment of Andres Soliz Rada as Minister of Hydrocarbons could signal a tough fight for the multinational gas and oil companies operating in Bolivia. A lawyer and former member of Congress who fiercely defended Bolivia's natural resources as a newspaper reporter, Soliz Rada will be in charge of renegotiating energy contracts so that Bolivia's state petroleum company has majority control and a significantly higher share of the profits. The new post of Minister of Water will be held by Abel Mamani, a radical civic leader in the slum city of El Alto who brought down two previous presidents with violent street protests and defeated a Bechtel Corp. subsidiary's plan to provide privatised water at steeply higher rates. Morales also named a mining union chief to lead the Mining Ministry, and appointed three women cabinet members.

Caroline took me on an Annviersary trip to Bolivia. Bolivia is a landlocked country located in central South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the north and east, Paraguay and Argentina to the south, Chile to the southwest, and Peru to the west. Prior to European colonization, the Andean region of Bolivia was a part of the Inca Empire -- the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. The conquistadors took control of the region in the 16th century. During most of the Spanish colonial period, this territory was known as Upper Peru and was under the administration of the Viceroyalty of Peru, which included most of Spain's South American colonies, although the area enjoyed substantial autonomy under the jurisdiction of the Royal Court of Charcas. After its first call for freedom in 1809, 16 years of war followed before the establishment of the Republic, named for Simón Bolívar, on 6 August 1825. Bolivia has struggled through periods of political instability and economic woes. Bolivia is a democratic republic that is divided into nine departments. Its geography is varied from the peaks of the Andes in the West, to the Eastern Lowlands, situated within the Amazon Basin. It is a developing country, with a Medium Human Development Index score, and a poverty level of 53%. Its main economic activities include agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining, and manufacturing goods such as textiles, clothing, refined metals, and refined petroleum. Bolivia is very wealthy in minerals, especially tin. Bolivia has gained global attention for its 'Law of the Rights of Mother Earth', one of the unique laws in the world that accord nature the same rights as humans. The Bolivian population, estimated at 10 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Mestizos, Europeans, Asians and Africans. The main language spoken is Spanish, although the Guarani, Aymara and Quechua languages are also common and all four, as well as 34 other indigenous languages, are official. The large number of different cultures within Bolivia has contributed greatly to a wide diversity in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music.

(29 Nov 2017) Bolivian President Evo Morales announced on Wednesday that he will run once again for office, after the country's highest court cleared the way for him to run for a fourth term in 2019 despite voters' rejection of such a move in a referendum last year. Speaking at the national palace Morales said that the ruling by the "constitutional court is based on the constitution and, overall, it is based on international law." The constitutional court ruled that the right to run for office supersedes limits on re-election imposed by Bolivia's constitution, citing the American Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees the right of citizens to be elected through the ballot box. Members of Morales' party, the Movement Toward Socialism, and pro-government unions applauded the ruling. The opposition called it unconstitutional. Morales, who is Bolivia's first indigenous president, was first elected in 2005 and re-elected in 2009 and 2014. Bolivia's constitution allows only two consecutive terms in office. While his next election bid would be for a fourth term, the constitutional court earlier ruled that his first term didn't count because Morales didn't complete the full five-year term before a new constitution took effect in 2009. Morales narrowly lost a referendum last February on whether the constitution should be revised to allow him to run yet again in 2019. Despite the loss, the ruling Movement Toward Socialism pressed for ways to allow Morales run again and appealed to the high court in September that the constitution limited his political rights. On Tuesday, the court said Morales could run again because the human rights convention overrides the constitution. An October poll by the company IPSOS said that 68 percent of Bolivians surveyed opposed his re-election in 2019.

Watch the full length documentary on VICE here: http://www.vice.com/vice-news/child-workers-of-the-world-unite In 1936, George Orwell visited a coal mine in Grimethorpe, England. "The place is like... my own mental picture of hell," he wrote of the experience. "Most of the things one imagines in hell are there—heat, noise, confusion, darkness, foul air, and, above all, unbearably cramped space." Orwell was a lanky guy, 6'3" or 6'2", and I am too, so I was reminded of his comparison recently while crawling through a tunnel as dank and dark as a medieval sewer, nearly a mile underground in one of the oldest active mines in Latin America, the Cerro Rico in Potosí, Bolivia. The chutes were so narrow that I couldn't have turned around—or turned back—even if I'd wanted to.

Some 1,000 disabled Bolivians tried to march on La Paz's Murillo square on Thursday to demand a higher monthly stipend. "We aren't asking for any favours from the government," said Luis Felipe Leigue, one of the leaders of the disabled group, which numbers 46,000 across the country. "We are asking for what rightly belongs to us. We are asking them to approve the law that we drafted and they are not doing it. We want to make it to Murillo Square, a place that belongs to all Bolivians, and they won't let us." When their caravan arrived in La Paz, they were met by police in riot gear; some were beaten, tased, and teargased. Hundreds settled into makeshift camps, some even stripped down as a form of protest. On Friday, the Bolivian government said infiltrators had provoked the violent response from police. The protesters, many of them in wheelchairs and on crutches, began marching November 15 in the eastern city of Trinidad, and have covered approximately 1,750 km. The protesters also claim that President Evo Morales has failed to comply with a 2006 law that diverted funds from political parties and citizen organisations to the disabled. The law reportedly re-routed some $6m annually to the disabled but the money never made it to them. Al Jazeera's Nick Toksvig reports.
