BOOK: Venceremos: The Other Globalisation by Katharina Mouratadi
(Edition Braus, £16.50)

NICK WRIGHT comes face to face with the global justice movement with the help of top photographer Katharina Mouratadi.

Oscar Olivera works in a Bolivian shoe factory.

“This workers’ culture,” he says, “to organise themselves, to struggle, to declare one’s solidarity, is one further element that has shaped my life – just like the moral, spiritual or also human reference points of people such as Che Guevara, the Zapatistas, Mahatma Gandhi and Christ, although I am not a Christian.”

Olivera is a workers’ leader in Cochabamba and led a notable citizens’ campaign to defend their water supply from World Bank-sponsored privatisation that would have resulted in a 200 per cent price rise.
