The Society of Political Economy and Critical Thinking of Latin America (SEPLA) categorically condemns the Coup d’Etat in Bolivia
In the face of resistance against neoliberalism and capitalism in Our America, a shameful coup has culminated today against the government of President Evo Morales and his vice president Álvaro García Linera, democratically reelected in the first round, through the majority vote of the Bolivian people.
With the support of the main candidate defeated, Carlos Mesa, with the support of the United States, with the support of the right-wing coup governments in the region and with the backing of the OAS, a wave of violence, mobilization and threats was unleashed, and yesterday got to the point of the burning of the homes of family members of the government components and of the threat from the Bolivian Army to wage a classic coup d’etat. In the face of open violence, President Evo Morales and his companions have decided to resign from the Presidency in order to guarantee the safety of the population and openly denounce the coup.
Bolivia faces an unconventional war, which is part of the new foreign policy corollary of the United States of America at this stage of open offensive of the ruling classes towards the peoples of the world. The coup in Bolivia is capitalist, racist, misogynist and xenophobic. It’s objective is to stall the process of social transformations in that country and ensure that the region does not move towards a new step in the resistance against the most recent capitalist reconfiguration.
The government of President Evo Morales, supported by a broad social and popular mass that supports him, has achieved recognition of the multiculturalism of Bolivian society, the construction and consolidation of the autonomous and sovereign plurinational state. It strengthened the expansion of the social and popular participation of the indigenous majority of its population, widening social and economic democracy and reversing the racism and social discrimination to which it was relegated for 500 years. In just fifteen years, the indigenous government managed to reverse social injustice, reducing the index of inequality in income distribution, and achieved the highest economic growth in the region in recent years.
We call for the urgent solidarity with the Bolivian people and the deepest condemnation of the coup in Bolivia.
We will be back. We will return and we will be millions! (Tupac Katári)
