Inside Story Americas - Paraguay: Impeachment or political coup?

Fernando Lugo, the president of Paraguay, has vowed to fight on after being ousted in what he calls a parliamentary coup. He was removed from office in a 39-4 vote by the opposition-controlled Senate on grounds that he encouraged land seizures and failed to maintain social harmony in Paraguay. But the new president, Federico Franco, says the Paraguayan Congress has acted legally. So was Lugo's removal justified, and what is next for Paraguay? Guests: Michael Shifter, Miguel Carrizosa Galiano, Adrienne Pine.
