To the Editor:

Given the historical interactions of the United States and the rest of the Americas and the colonial inequalities that persist today, is it any wonder that representatives from the United States are rarely given a cordial welcome in much of South America?

What happened in Argentina was a transnational movement; all of South America came together to throw George W. Bush out and sent him back home along with a free trade policy that did not have their best interests in mind. Some might argue that it was real democracy at work.
