Luis Arce denounced that they are "creating the conditions for a new coup" in Bolivia

The President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Luis Arce, warned that the opposition intends to create conditions for a new “coup d’état” in the country, with protests and paralysis of activities that were partially registered in some regions.

“The undemocratic conspiracy has not been defeated with last year’s elections, it raises its head again, causing disturbances and disunity among Bolivians to create the conditions for a new coup d’état, which, if successful, would destroy our entire struggle to promote the actions we have announced, “said the president when participating in the World People’s Meeting for Our Mother Earth in La Paz.

Arce added: “All the actions and efforts that we carry out in our country run the risk of being diluted and paralyzed, because they affect economic interests of the privileged of always “.

Thus, the president rejected the strike and the mobilizations against the bill against the Legitimization of Illicit Profits that yesterday brought together a large part of the opposition in marches and rallies.

The stoppage of activities called by civic organizations made up of institutions opposed to the Government, which was added to the mobilization initially called by the unions against the illicit profit bill, was carried out this Monday in the eastern department of Santa Cruz.

In the city of Cochabamba, capital of the department of the same name, there were also some blockades, as in the city of La Paz and in the departments of Tarija and Potosí.

The Ministry of Labor argued that the activities were “completely normal” in eight of the nine departments and the protest did not affect the sectors of production, manufacturing, government and banking services, urban and long-distance transport, or commercial flights.

“The construction of a historic democratic bloc is just beginning with this first strike; let’s not expect great things. It is a process,” explained Manuel Morales, leader of the National Committee for the Defense of Democracy (Conade), one of the groups that called for the protest and that in 2019 it mobilized against the government of Evo Morales.

From the Executive, the Minister of Government, Eduardo del Castillo, highlighted via Twitter that the little impact of the measure was “a message that the Bolivian people are giving those who call for strikes; the people want to work for economic reactivation. “

Santa Cruz, governed by Luis Fernando Camacho, one of the architects of the 2019 coup, was one of the strong points of the strike: there was no public or private transport and most businesses closed.
