November 16: Day Of Solidarity With Bolivia
CALL TO ACTION:
On the heels of a successful emergency demonstration held Monday, November 11 at cities throughout the US against Washington’s sponsored coup in Bolivia, a second larger event is scheduled for Saturday afternoon on November 16 to coincide with worldwide actions in support Evo Morales’ rightful presidency.
On Sunday, November 10, Evo Morales and members of his administration were forced to resign under death threats directed not only at them but also at their families.
President-in-exile Evo Morales is now safely in Mexico but vows to return to Bolivia with strength. Anti-imperialist groups in the US support him in his efforts and join with him and the indigenous Bolivian people, that are now persecuted by the right-wing racist coup and its fascist mobs, in their struggle for justice, autonomy, and self-determination.
As of this writing, NYC’s protest against the Trump administration’s coup in Bolivia is planned for 1:00 PM at Columbus Circle. In Washington DC, the protest is scheduled for 12:00 PM at the White House. It is expected that other cities will also hold actions and additional groups will sign on.
Presently, the following groups are sponsoring Saturday’s action: Struggle La Lucha, ANSWER Coalition, CODE PINK, International Action Center, Popular Resistance and Honduran Resistance. Updates and more detailed information can be found on their websites and Facebook pages.
