Natural gas, indigenous mobilization and the Bolivian state
This paper examines the relationship between natural gas extraction, state restructuring and political mobilization among indigenous peoples in Bolivia. The paper looks at the impact of a natural gas operation on the Guarani community of Cumandaroti. Residents of the community, as well as their crops and livestock, have been harmed by the gas extraction activities and as a result, have led several protests demanding restitution.
