Summary: Cochabamba tells the story of the Water War, the first great victory against corporate globalization in Latin America. Oscar Olivera was at the center of the grassroots movement that brought thousands of ordinary working people to the streets of Cochabama, Bolivia. The spokesperson for the Coordinadora, Olivera conveys the ideas and emotions of a firsthand participant in the triumphant struggle that not only regained control of the water, but also kicked out the tran moresnational corporation that had privatized it.

Olivera reflects on themes that emerged as a result of the war over water: the fear and isolation that Cochabambinos and Cochabambinas overcame through a spirit of solidarity; the new practices of popular democracy realized during the struggle; the challenges of operating the city's water service in a community-based manner; and the impact of the Water War on subsequent struggles. less
