President Luis Arce pointed out this Friday that there are sectors that defend democracy only when it suits them and, when not, they look for “extra-democratic mechanisms to seize power”.

The highest national authority, during the act for the 71 years of the General Confederation of Factory Workers of Bolivia (CGTFB), held in La Paz, asked the working class to be vigilant and not allow the events of 2019 to be repeated.

There are people who do not like democracy when it does not suit them. When democracy is not useful to them, they begin to question it and use extra-democratic mechanisms to seize power”, he stated in his speech.

He confirmed that what was experienced in the country almost three years ago was a “coup d’état”, when Evo Morales resigned from the Presidency, amid protests over irregularities in the general elections.

“The working class must be very attentive, we have experienced it in 2019 with the ‘coup d’état’ and we are sure that no factory, no miner, no no worker is willing to repeat that sad history of the country”, he remarked.

Amid the tension over the census, with the demand of Santa Cruz, to be carried out in 2023and other latent conflicts, with the cacaleros of the Yungas and the red ponchos of Omasuyus, the Government urges the establishment of dialogue mechanisms.

“The Central Obrera Boliviana has closed ranks and will not allow the destabilization of our Governmentit will not allow the destabilization of the country’s social organizations, “warned the executive secretary of the COB, Juan Carlos Huarachi.
