(VIDEO) MERCOSUR presidents condemn Washington’s illegal surveillance practices

Bolivia’s President Evo Morales was stranded in Vienna as some European countries refused to allow his jet into their airspace, amid suggestions former NSA contractor Edward Snowden was on board. The incident has unleashed a chorus of raging condemnation across Latin America.

Head of States of the South American trading bloc MERCOSUR met in the Uruguayan capital city of Montevideo where they addressed the Morales incident.

But what started as an attack against a head of state has in fact turned into a decisive anti-imperialist showdown by South American leaderships when Brazilian media unveiled US spying programs in regional countries.
