        Kean Wong: Voters in the Santa Cruz region of Bolivia are hoping for a new start. This comes after recent election results in favour of autonomy for the area. Disruptions from the Bolivian President have failed. Let's find out more. Celebrations on the streets of Santa Cruz as Bolivia's wealthiest region delivers an overwhelming 'yes' vote in a referendum on autonomy. The ballot in theory at least gives the region's conservative leaders more control over natural resources which include about a tenth of the nation's oil and natural gas reserves. The referendum is one of four taking place in Bolivia's eastern provinces where the conservative opposition to President Evo Morales is concentrated. Local leaders are welcoming the outcome. [Ruben Costas, Santa Cruz Prefect]: "The abuse and racism by central government have failed because we've been able to express ourselves democratically. We've worked gloriously, with responsibility and humility, to construct a new country." Supporters of Bolivia's President boycotted the referendum and angrily battled to disrupt the voting. At times that anger boiled over into violence and destruction of polling stations. The ballot is widely seen as a rejection of the President's leftist reforms. They include breaking up large land holdings, energy industry nationalisation, and reform of the constitution to empower the poor, indigenous, majority. Morales says the Santa Cruz vote is an attempt to destabilise his government.

          Anna Chan: Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone calls for democracy in Burma. His latest "Rambo" film is set in Burma and deals with human rights violations. Here's more on the story. Rags-to-riches boxer and tough-as-nails Vietnam veteran, thats Rambo. Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars as Rambo in this new movie. [Sylvester Stallone, Rambo Actor]: "I wanted to do something realistic, something responsible and something political and not many people in the world know about Burma even though it's the longest reigning civil war, 60 years, on the planet." Yesterday Stallone was in Tokyo talking up his movie, as well as doing his bit to help the Burmese people. [Sylvester Stallone, Rambo Actor]: "Just recently with this horrible cyclone, we see how these people were unprepared and are being treated terribly, suffering because of the indifference of the government... I think what's gonna come out of this devastating cyclone and the fact that our film has made it much more apparent of the violence that these people live under, I think there's going to be great social change in that country because they can't hide anymore. So we're very happy and proud to be involved with doing our little effort and bring Burma into an area of democracy." Stallone appeared in great shape after a grueling three months in the Thai and Burmese jungle making the film. Stallone's movie specifically focuses on the Karen tribe of eastern Myanmar. UK-based Christian Aid says the Karen and other groups have suffered half a million cases of forced relocation and thousands more have been imprisoned, tortured or killed. Several former Burmase freedom fighters acted in the movie despite government threats.

                      In November 2006, Nicaraguans participated in their fourth Presidential election. The campaign was hot, the issues vital. What is the best way to combat poverty? What role will Nicaragua have in the global marketplace? What kind of country will the children of Nicaragua inherit? Nothing less than the future of the nation is at stake, and everybody has an opinion. Seasoned politicians Daniel Ortega and Jose Rizo face formidable opposition from first-time candidates Eduardo Montealegre, Edmundo Jarquin, and Eden Pastora. Producers Arthur Nicholls and Stephanie Appell, captivated by the beauty and humanity they witnessed on numerous visits to Nicaragua, felt compelled to use their talents and give something back. They worked with Nicaraguan native, and Grey Matters Media producer, Ana Bendana to interview some of the nation’s key figures, exploring why the upcoming election is such a pivotal moment for Nicaragua and discovering the significance of each individual vote. Electing: Democracy will not only help Nicaraguans make a better, more informed choice on Election Day. It has captured a country on the brink of a metamorphosis. Despite decades of turmoil, Nicaraguans look to the future with hope. Although political parties may divide some, everyone is united in the desire for internal stability and peace. Each vote in November is another small stride in that direction, but everyone knows that a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step
