Three neighbouring countries are going through a violent social conflict, and another one will be in the first half of 2022. Brazil because of elections considered fraudulent, Peru because of a presidential replacement considered fraudulent, and Bolivia because of the imprisonment of a Santa Cruz politician linked to the 2019 coup. He is a virulent opponent of the MAS government. Between 13 June and 30 June 2022, Ecuador protests convulsed the country, led by the indigenous movement and joined by civil society. Repression in Brazil and Bolivia has led to the arrest of hundreds of people.
