Bolivia - "Water Riots" (2000) (Part 2/2)

"In Bolivia for sale Damian Lewis travels with Christian Aid to investigate the effects of privatisation in three key markets: water, gas and milk. Speaking with campaigners and people affected he hears how the newly privatised water company has failed to provide for poor people. He visits a gas processing plant and hears from experts who say that Bolivia has failed to profit from recently discovered reserves worth an estimated $250 billion. He hears the story of the 'Gas Wars', the popular protests that toppled a president and put gas on the political agenda. 4,000 metres up in the stunning Andes he meets a dairy farmer struggling to survive since privatisation led to the domination of the milk market by one multinational."
