Kawsachun News is based in Bolivia and provides news reporting and analysis on Latin America.
Kawsachun News is the English language service of Radio Kawsachun Coca, the official outlet of the 6 Federations of the Trópico of Cochabamba, the campesino workers unions of which Evo Morales is President.
Radio Kawsachun Coca is a community, union-run radio station, that became the most important media outlet in Bolivia after the November 2019 coup because it was the only platform for persecuted social movements.
This service was created in May 2019 at the height of the struggle against the US-backed coup, as social movements demanded that their voices be heard internationally.
Our mission is to defend the struggles for popular sovereignty in Bolivia and all of Latin America and the Caribbean. The anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, and anti-neoliberal editorial line is determined by the social movements of the Trópico (the 6 Federations), the owners of this outlet.
Our name, Kawsachun, comes from the historic slogan in Quechua, of the Indigenous struggles in the Trópico against the former U.S. military presence:
¡Kawsachun Coca, Wayñuchun Yankees!
Long live Coca, Yankees Out!
