Appeal of Solidarity with the People, Government, and Progressive Forces of Bolivia


12-13-07, 9:24 am

The political process in Bolivia faces a critical moment. The reactionary forces, the oligarchy, the US government and some European forces promote a large scale campaign aiming to reverse the progressive processes in this Latin American country. The goal of all these forces is to block the changes promoted by the Constitutional Assembly for a democratic Constitution for the benefit of the popular demands. The retrograde forces, defeated on October 2003 and during the elections in 2005 try again to reorganize their ranks, to stop any change and to undermine President Evo Morales. In order to achieve their goals they use any means, including armed groups. The consequent progressive forces of the country, the social movements and organizations, after great and heroical battles, alongside with the Moviemento al Socialismo [MAS] under the presidency of Evo Morales, were the winners with big majority in the elections. Now these forces try to valorize this victory in order important demands of the working people to be adopted and further promoted. We, the signatories of this appeal, sharply denounce the support provided by the US government as well as its direct involvement in the subversive actions in Bolivia. We also denounce the scandalous tolerance showed by other imperialist states and international organizations towards such inadmissible actions. There is an urgent task the reactionary forces to be unequivocally condemned, isolated and defeated both on national and international level. We stand on the side of the people of Bolivia and fully support the great mobilizations against the plans for a coup d'etat. We support the alliance between the people and the government of Bolivia against the machinations of the oligarchy. We express our full solidarity to the Bolivian people, to the government of the President Evo Morales, to the Communist Party of Bolivia, to MAS-IRSP and to all other progressive and anti-imperialist forces and movements in their great battle in defense of the progressive gains, in the struggle for deeper changes. We call on for the development by all means of a large solidarity movement with the anti-imperialist forces and the people of Bolivia. Signed
