“the pesticides that seep into every water source, crop, and conversation”

Via Quotha, two more analyses of the Paraguay coup:

“Paraguay's presidential coup: the inside story,” Andrew Nickson

“A Coup Over Land: The Resource War Behind Paraguay's Crisis,” Benjamin Dangl (the source of my title quote*)

(*Another interesting quote from this week is Venezuelan OAS ambassador Roy Chaderson, after OAS head José Miguel Insulza’s declaration that Paraguay shouldn’t be suspended from the organization, describing the OAS as “like a bowl of cold onion soup, without even the crust of melted cheese.”)
