Venezuelan news outlet “La Tabla” presented evidence of General Vladimir Yuri Calderon, Head of National Police in Bolivia being Police Attache in Washington until 2018, coincidence or another evidence of Washington’s roll in the coup.

While right wingers try to find a way to make digestable the coup accusing Evo and his allies of “breaking’ the chain of succession when in reality those resignations are a response to the fascist aggression against Evo Morales’ political allies, against them and their families and properties, and while MSM keeps trying to present the coup just like “another president resigning”, the humble Bolivians have started their resistance and the process of bringing Evo Morales back.

El Alto is “massively” on the streets now and history has taught us that when that happens they won’t stop until they reach their objective.

The police that 48 hours ago said they wont use their weapons against the people have started the repression but that is not stopping the people’s uprising demanding the return of Evo Morales.
