Why could LITHIUM be a LOST CHANCE for BOLIVIA? - VisualPolitik EN
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. Lithium is an opportunity for investment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJEo8R64aTQ Lithium legislation in Chile: https://prensa.presidencia.cl/comunicado.aspx?id=27483 Bolivia builds a lithium battery factory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a62n70Cy2es And don't forget to visit our friend’s podcast, Reconsider Media: http://www.reconsidermedia.com/

Bolivian Children Push to Legally Enter Workforce at Age 12
As the Bolivian legislature debates a new code that will lower the child labour age and install measures to protect the rights of child workers, children voice their support. Full Story: Work has become a way of life for a 12-year-old Bolivian boy named Rudy who starting working at age eight. Five hours of each day is dedicated to his job at a small eatery, where he cleans and helps with service. He is grateful for the one dollar forty-four cents and plate of food that make up his wages and is determined to keep his job even if Bolivia doesn't pass a law lowering the labor age from 14 to 12. [Rudy, 12-Year-Old Worker]: "No, I'm not going to stop working because I need money for school. I have decided to work because I need money." Rudy is just one of some 870-thousand Bolivian children who work, representing one-tenth of the Bolivian population. According to a 2008 study on child labor, conducted by the Bolivian National Institute of Statistics, 28 percent of the population between 5 and 17 years old is involved in "labour activities". And 87 percent of that group are in jobs that put their physical and psychological health at risk. The issue of child labor has picked up steam recently in Bolivia as the national legislature debates a new code that could lower the working age for children. 10-year-old David, a full-time dishwasher at a local fruit stand, says the new legislation is critical. [David, 10-Year-Old Dishwasher]: "I would tell President Evo Morales to help children to work so that they are not left in the street—to work so that they can continue studying." Bolivian President Evo Morales has said he stands behind a drop in the child labor age. The new code under scrutiny in the legislature has found itself with a strong base of support that includes a union of child workers and UNICEF. Bolivia's UNICEF representative Katarina Johansson Mekoulou says the organization stands behind the measure's efforts to protect children from dangerous jobs, such as in agriculture and mining. For many child workers, having a job is means of survival. Estela Mamani began working at age nine after her mother had an accident and became unable to support her eight children. Mamani says she found work that paid her only in food and received her first monetary wage when she was 12. But not everyone is on board with the new code. Claudia Gonzales of the child-support NGO ALALAY Foundation has spent 23 years helping child workers and thinks the measure is not addressing the main problem. She says the state should make policies and programs for all vulnerable groups, including poverty-stricken families, to support them so that children will not be forced to work.

In Bolivia, much of the heavy work is carried on small shoulders.
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.

This protest is done in order ask the government to answer our claims because the businessmen who should be doing that are hiding behind the bankruptcy rules. If we don't have an answer today, we're calling all the miners of Chile to strike during one hour tomorrow, Tuesday." 14. Various of protesters marching through Copiapo STORYLINE: Rescued miner Carlos Mamani met with Bolivian President Evo Morales on Monday, just days after he and 32 others were dramatically freed from a mine in neighbouring Chile. The men were trapped deep underground for two months. Mamani, who is Bolivian, was accompanied by his wife and 14- month-old-daughter. Morales has offered Mamani a house and a job. According to the Bolivian consul in Chile, Mamani can choose the Bolivian town where he wants to live and he can take up a job with YPFB, the state oil company. Mamani has chosen Cochabamba, where he will work for a salary of 1-thousand US dollars per month. Meanwhile, rescued miner Jose Galleguillos has been helping his family to dismantle the tent city that sprang up near the San Jose mine in Chile. Families camped out as the operation to free the trapped men continued. Blanca Rojas, the mother of Victor Segovia, another rescued miner, said her son had told her the mine was "no good." "It is sick," she said. "My son has told me that underneath this mine all is rotten. Nobody can work here - at any moment the whole thing could collapse. They were in great danger." The San Jose mine is inoperable following the cave-in and its owners have declared bankruptcy. Most of the rescued miners have received job offers from other companies, many far from Copiapo, but a different situation is awaiting the more than 300 other former employees who were not trapped and are now out of work. These miners marched through Copiapo on Monday demanding their severance payments. They fear that if they take other jobs now, they could lose all the acquired pay and benefits the law entitled them to receive. Javier Castillo, General Secretary of San Esteban Mine Union, said the other workers also needed to be rescued now. "We need the payment of the final settlement for today," he said. "This protest is done in order ask the government to answer our claims because the businessmen who should be doing that are hiding behind the bankruptcy rules." He threatened a one-hour strike on Tuesday by all miners in Chile if no answer was forthcoming.

Lithium can bridge the gap in India Bolivia Relations says Bolivian Ambassador and Sergio Arispe
India and Bolivia have shared cordial relations for a long time. At a time when India is expanding its sphere of influence across the globe, Bolivia cant be left out form the picture. The country is a goldmine of reserves of the element Lithium. India requires a large amount of it to fuel its renewable energy and electric vehicles programme. India has initiated dialogues with the so called ‘lithium triangle’ — a group of countries comprising Chile, Argentina and Bolivia — that sits on the world’s largest lithium deposits and is seeking investments from Indian businesses to develop some large mines. In an exclusive interview with BW Businessworld Bolivia’s Ambassador to India Sergio Arispe discusses bilateral, the roadblocks in improving ties and Boilivia’s gold equivalent- Lithium.

Spanish/Nat Deforestation in Bolivia is on the increase, despite conservation regulations implemented by the government. More than half the country is covered in fragile Amazonian forest, an area which stretches to almost 6 million (m) hectares. But timber and other forest by-products are increasingly seen as a free resource by those living on the poverty line. Bolivia's rainforests are in danger of being irreversibly damaged by unsustainable development. Huge tracts of rainforest are cleared every year by illegal loggers working for unscrupulous merchants. Wages are pitifully low - two tree trunks fetch on average of 3 U-S dollars. It's believed many of the loggers are aware of the potential ecological damage they are causing. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "After these trees are gone some others will grow, but they won't be like these trees, which are hundreds of years old. I think that tree there is more than a century old." SUPER CAPTION: Leonardo Justiniano, Woodman But many have no alternative but to keep on felling trees to earn money. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I know we are doing it wrong, but we've got to do it to survive." SUPER CAPTION: Antonio Rodriguez, Woodman Environmentalists warn that Bolivia faces a potential environmental disaster if deforestation is not checked. But the government continues to insist that adequate conservation measures are in place that will prevent this from happening. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We are the ones that provide the best lungs on Earth. There is not another country in the world that has looked after its Amazonian forests as well as Bolivia. Thank God, we have national parks where an irrational use of the resources is banned, where we believe in sustain ability, and that has preserved the forests. I can say today that Bolivia is the country in the world that pollutes the least because it compensates with the generation of oxygen from those trees." SUPER CAPTION: Neisa Roca, Vice-Minister of the environment and natural resources Studies show that more than 3 million cubic metres of forest are felled each week, and the rate is increasing. But without recognition from the government, and rapid implementation of more stringent conservation legislation, very little can be done to reverse this trend.

Death of young man unleashes massive protests in Bolivia
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.

Bolivia miners dying from lung disease
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Negotiations are expected to continue in Bolivia on Monday between rival workers at the country's second biggest tin and zinc mine. Private and public sector miners have been fighting for the right to control part of a recently nationalised mine in Potosi. Miners in Bolivia work for long hours in difficult conditions, and as Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports, the risks are great.
Views: 816 Al Jazeera English
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.

But to kids like Eric the new law offers access to new rights that were never available to him before. "It's a good idea.

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.

Undermined. Bolivia’s child workers: Breadwinners or exploited kids (Trailer) Premiere 01/17
While most countries have been trying to eradicate child labour, Bolivia ended up becoming the first nation in the world’s to legalize it. Watch full documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8qmVScCVcY&t=21s 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.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
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.

Bolivia: Stepping up the fight against child labour
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. An estimated 20 percent of Bolivian children, hundreds of thousands of under 17-year-olds, work in agriculture, mining, in markets and on the streets.

Morales announces he will run again for president of Bolivia
(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.

A conservation effort in the Bolivian Amazon has seen over 100,000 baby turtles released into rivers, including the San Pedro and Itenez, located in the northeastern part of the country. The creatures were liberated in order to stimulate their numbers in Bolivia's rivers, where they are endangered due to the high demand for their meat and eggs. The river turtles also play an important role in the area's ecosystem. Bolivia's President Evo Morales attended the releasing ceremony stating: "We hope to continue to recover our ways of living, to preserve our animals, but also to implement new projects for the benefit of all."

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.

Business Opportunities in the Lithium Mining Industry in Argentina
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.
