i think the title is Quechua not spanish (well the 'Grupo' is spanish), though i assume the journal would be in spanish since quechua isn't really a written language i don't think (it was transcribed by europeans phonetically with a western alphabet iirc) ... would be interesting to read - especially the elections analysis because i was there then, though my spanish would be blind to naunce.

A mediados de este ao 2006 hicimos una cambio de nombre en nuestro colectivo, usando ahora el de Grupo Qhispikay Llaqta (en lengua quechua y en castellano La Libertad del Pueblo) como una manera de seguir en la lucha desde un enfoque ms popular y anticapitalista, rescatando nuestra cultura no como un nacionalismo trasnochado sino como una respuesta frente a lo alienante.

According to this Qhispikay Llaqta is Quechua for Freedom of the People.
