Solidarity with the Government and People of Bolivia in the Face of the Coup Threat

November 4, 2019

Statement from the Network in Defense of Humanity

The government of Evo Morales is the most democratic and stable in the history of Bolivia. The social movements, formed mostly by the indigenous population and the country’s most humble, led him again to the presidency.

His political, economic and cultural achievements have been recognized around the world.

Evo rescued social and natural goods, which allowed for a fairer distribution of wealth. Bolivia today is an example of a plurinational state; a democratic and inclusive form of social organization. The human development indexes were the worst in South America and today are among the best in the region.

The ongoing coup attempt is racist, oligarchic and deeply anti-democratic and needs to be stopped.

It is outrageous that the legitimacy of a president is being discussed after having won an election with more than 10 points over his opponent.

The Network in Defense of Humanity stands in solidarity with the government and the people of Bolivia in the face of the coup threat promoted by the United States and the ultra-reactionary and fascist forces.
