After remaining 41 days in vigil at the doors of the offices of the Permanent Assembly of Human Rights of Bolivia (APDHB), the activist Amparo Carvajal, 84, climbed a ladder and entered the offices through a terrace of the adjoining building to continue their protest against the takeover of the facilities by a group affiliated with the MAS.

“That they attack me, what else does it matter. It’s already been 40 days and, don’t you think I’ve been quite attacked? They thought that I was not going to be able to climb the stairs and I was able to. Now I am going to stay here until I die,” Carvajal said from the terrace of the offices located on Calle 6 de Agosto in the city of La Paz.

According to a first video that began to circulate around noon yesterday Tuesday in different media and social networks, Carvajal managed to climb the ladder leaning against a wall of the disputed buildingwhile a police officer also went up the same element trying to prevent the 84-year-old activist from suffering an incident.

Later, in another video, Carvajal was already observed sitting on a terrace-type platform of the Apdhb building, next to the same police officer who went up with her and with an umbrella that protected her from the sun’s rays.

Carvajal and the group of Édgar Salazar dispute the presidency of the Permanent Assembly of Human Rights of Bolivia. The Ombudsman, Pedro Callisaya, reiterated his invitation to mediate in the conflict that also reached constitutional chambers that did not give any resolution.

Last night, the conflict continued with struggles and shouting between the police and the citizens of the platforms that went to the Apdhb building. For at least 45 minutes, a group of people tried to reach the octogenarian activist with another ladder.

a significant police operation prevented people from reaching the terrace where Amparo Carvaja wasly the confrontation seemed imminent if it weren’t for the defender herself who vociferously asked not to confront the Police, although she won’t leave the place either.

The Police tried to convince Amparo Carvajal to leave that place and return to the tent where he remained vigil for more than 40 days. Salazar’s block had summoned again to defend the building, but was unsuccessful.
