This is the story of people lived in CochabambaIn Bolivia. Peoples successful struggle against Privitasation of water in Bolivia reminds us that Popular struggles are integral to the working inDemocracy. BOLIVIAs WATER STRUGGLE:-
Reasons for the struggle:-Privatisation of water supply
The price of water increased drastically.
This led to a spontaneous popular protest.
On January 2000, a new alliance of labour, human rights &Community leaders organised four day strike in the city.
The Government agreed to negotiate & strike was called off. Yet nothing happened.The police resorted to brutal repression when the agitations was started in February.
The power of the people forced the officials of the mnc To flee the city & made the government concede to all the demands of the protestors
AS A RESULT THE CONTRACT WITH MNC WAS CANCELLED & WATER SUPPLY WAS RESTORED TO THE MUNICIPALITY AT THE OLD RATES.THIS CAME TO BE KNOWN AS BOLIVIAS WATER WAR.

Similarities in Nepal & Bolivia StruggleIn both the cases the Political Conflicts led to Popular struggles.In both the cases Mass Mobilisation played vital role.
Role of Political OrganisationsIn both the cases there Is an involvement of politicalOrganisations like SPA, Nepal Maoist Party in Nepal & Socialist Party in Bolivia.
We can draw few conclusions from the struggles of Nepal & Bolivia1.Democracy evolves through popular struggles
2. Democratic Conflicts are resolved through Mass Mobilisation
3. Conflicts & mobilisations are based on Political OrganisationsThe spontaneous public participation becomes more effective withThe help of organised politics.These include Political Parties, Pressure Groups & Movement Groups
MOBILISATION & ORGANISATIONSIN NEPAL WE HAVE FEW ORGANISTIONS LIKE SPA,NMP,ORGANISATIONS OF LAWYERS, DOCTORS, HUMAN RIGHTS GROUP, LABOUR UNIONS etc
Bolivias Water War was mainly led by an organization called FEDECOR
This organisation comprised of local professionals, including Engineers & Environmentalists who were supported by federations of farmers,labour unions & middle class students of University of Cochabamba.
SOCIALIST PARTYBOLIVIASOCIALIST PARTY WAS PARTICIPATED ACTIVELY IN THE WATER STRUGGLE AND IT ALSO CAME TO THE POWER IN 2006
From both the struggles of Bolivia & Nepal we can say that diffeent organisations play a vital role in struggles. Role of organisations are in two ways: Direct way Indirect wayIt influences the decisions by direct participation in competitive politicsIt influences the decisions by indirect participation in competitive politics
This is done by creating parties, contesting elections & forming governments. This is done by forming an organisation and undertaking activities to promote their interest or their view point.Ex: Political partiesEx: Pressure or Interest groups
Pressure Groups & Movement GroupsPressure & Movement Groups are the organisations that attempt to influence government policies.
Differences between Sectional Interest Groups & Public Interest Groups Sectional Interest Groups Public Interest GroupsThey represent particular section of the society like workers, Industrialists, business persons etc.They represent all the section of the society in general.Their main concern is the betterment of their members.Their main concern is the social justice & equality for the entire society.They promote selective goodThey promote collective goodEx: Trade Unions , Business Associations, Teachers AssociationsEx: BAMCEF ( Backward and Minorities Community Employees Federation )
