Evo moves against Media Luna opponents
It did not take long. As expected, Evo Morales, fresh from his huge victory in the Dec. 6 elections, has moved against some of those who have opposed him over the past several years. In this most public of cases, the Bolivian land reform ministry has seized more than 12,000 hectares from a Santa Cruz businessman who led the rightwing opposition to Evo since 2005. According to local press reports, his land will be given to the Indians who live on it. If you want to read about it in English, see this AP story.
