Last year a contested presidential election led to President Evo Morales leaving Bolivia--and pitched Bolivians into a state of conflict and uncertainty. We tell the story of what Bolivians lived through a year ago, and why it might help us understand what’s happening right now in the U.S. Learn more about your ad-choices at
