We have been forced to bury our own social practices and forms of life in cultural clandestinity. We also learned these lies and often we were ignorant of our own history. Budget — Section 21 amending Section 63 for CARL state that the budget allocated for the 5-year extension is Billion pesos which will be sourced from three funds: Agrarian Reform Fund, General Appropriations Acts GAA and other sources of funding like privatization of government asset, foreign donors, etc. It represents the indigenous people of Bolivia who make up nearly two thirds of the population, those descended from the people who inhabited the land before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors.

For them, this is a life changing moment, time for a fiesta. These groups, too, responded to government pressure to implement the reforms. Our struggles were no longer isolated. They demanded the recognition of their ancestral territories and, in doing so, earned wide public support. After treating us as second class people, they attempted to force us to become citizens so that we should offer our lives in the front line trenches in the Chaco war.

They produce corn, potatoes, yucca, tomatoes and carrots. The agrarian reform has never reached many regions. We could not vote or be elected. With one hand Leon Jeremi Debasces waved the blue and white flag of MAS, the coalition party led by Evo Morales, whilst his other limp arm hung by his side. We have to work to survive.

Because of this recognition, at the present time, such land holdings are exempted from being expropriated by the government, even though these wealthy landowners axiomatically play a prominent role within the middle class political opposition, buttressing it in their anti-agrarian reform stand.

Beneficiaries must be least 15 years old, be a resident of the barangay where the land holding is located, and own no Cochabamba landowners and the agrarian reform book than 3 hectares of agricultural land.

Second, landlords have mounted a judicial counteroffensive to delay the land distribution process. Our brothers, the miners, were becoming organized Cochabamba landowners and the agrarian reform book also struggling against the exploitative rosca.

Easterners are also worried that agrarian reform will flood the lowland communities with impoverished indigenous immigrants from the western part of the country, tipping the social and political balance as well as adversely altering present demographics.

Peasant unionism was transformed by the political groups in power into an instrument of manipulation. Hunger, theft and dishonesty were unknown. Growth with equity should also focus on supporting and developing the poorer rural region, with the long-term goal being the procurement of international financial and technical support.

It sought to develop relationships with members of Guatemalan military, and instituted an arms blockade that caused the military to fear a security crisis or even US invasion. The Federal Ministry of the Agrarian Reform was long ago created to regulate the vast parcels of land that were acquired by the government after the revolution and to care that the feudal system could not come back into power.

CARPER also institutionalized a land acquisition and distribution schedule that put the priority on distributing bigger landholdings; enshrined the right of rural women to own and control land, invoking the substantive equality between men and women as qualified beneficiaries; provided for access to socialized credit for all agrarian reform beneficiaries; and specified penal provisions, including the filing of criminal cases against landowners for delaying agrarian reform implementation, against DAR for delay in land acquisition and distribution, and against landlords for undue delay in attesting to the qualification of tenants and regular farm workers as beneficiaries.

The specific problem is: appears to be pasted from legal document Please help improve this section if you can. What are these circumstances? It is not the result of the sort of ministerial interference which occurred during the years of movimientista manipulation under the Military-Peasant Pact.

The New Agrarian Reform in Bolivia

The "Ejidos" consist of a defined governing body "Comisariado"land parcels "parcelas" and members "ejidatarios"thus creating an agrarian community or town "ejido".

Large holdings were expropriated by the National Institute for Land Reform INRAbut most is managed by government officials and has not been redistributed. We reject the reduction of the whole of our history to one single factor, either a class struggle or an ethnic struggle.

Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program

Representatives of three communities were presented with the legal titles to their land by President Evo Morales, a former union leader of coca growers and now the first indigenous president of the most indigenous country in Latin America.

Nevertheless, the blood spilled in the Chaco was not in vain: it nurtured the awakening of a new conscience among the peasantry. Road blocks were set up throughout the country, bringing transport to a total standstill and preventing the distribution of foodstuffs.

The first rural unions emerged following the Chaco war.The partition of the hacienda in Cochabamba department was unique within Bolivia, and the agrarian reform did not eliminate the traditional hacienda but merely terminated a process of transformation of land tenure that began earlier as a consequence of the factors outlined above (see Table VI).
