Solidarity with Bolivia

The Society of Political Economy and Critical Thinking of Latin America (SEPLA), joins the diverse voices and social and political forces of Bolivia, Our America and the world, to demand respect for the electoral results of the Plurinominal State of Bolivia, which determined the democratic triumph of President Evo Morales and his Vice President Álvaro García Linera, in the first round, through the majority vote of the Bolivian people. This popular decision expresses broad support for the democratic advances promoted and materialized by the MAS government at the head of the first indigenous president. In this sense, we reject the coup attempts and destabilizers driven by reactionary forces protected by foreign powers and interests, especially from the United States. The government of President Evo Morales, supported by a broad social and popular mass that supports it, has achieved recognition of the multiculturalism of Bolivian society and the construction and consolidation of the autonomous and sovereign Plurinational State.

(versión en pdf para difusión) Al mismo tiempo que recrudece la injerencia extranjera en Venezuela -lo cual repudiamos en nuestro comunicado del 23 de enero-, los Estados Unidos amenazan y tratan de intimidar a Cuba con la aplicación del título III de la Ley Helms Burton. Un eslabón más de la historia de la guerra económica contra Cuba. • A partir del 3 de febrero de 1962, bajo la presidencia de Kennedy, Cuba ha estado sometida a un embargo total, a intentos de asesinato de dirigentes, a boicot en organismos internacionales, presiones a países terceros para entorpecer las relaciones económicas. • Desde 1992 la Asamblea General de Naciones Unidas vota masivamente contra el embargo. En la última Asamblea la votación fue de 189 votos a favor de terminar el embargo y dos, EEUU e Israel para continuarlo. • En 1996 el presidente Clinton firmó la ley Helms-Burton promovida por dos congresistas republicanos que le dan el nombre. El capítulo III de esta ley nunca fue puesto en práctica, Clinton debió posponer su uso para frenar la indignación internacional que despertó. Desde entonces, todos los presidentes de los EEUU posponen semestralmente su implementación, conscientes de la falta de sustento en la…
