US-backed coup in Bolivia
#3
Newly declared interim President Jeanine Anez, whose party received only 4% of the votes in October, has expelled hundreds of Cuban doctors, broken off ties to Venezuela and pulled Bolivia out of multiple international treaties and intercontinental organisations.
Anez declared that she is “committed to taking all measures necessary to pacify” the population. Anez has described indigenous Bolivians as “satanic” (there is some discussion on whether the following tweet is real and has been deleted since).

Many people look to international human rights organisations to actually defend them against state terrorism. Human Rights Watch (HRW) has once again shown to endorse US-backed coups.
In its official communiqué, HRW didn’t call it a “coup”, instead insisting Morales “resigned”. HRW’s Americas Director José Miguel Vivanco claimed President Morales stepped down “after weeks of civil unrest and violent clashes” and for some reason “forgets” to mention opposition violence against his party or the US-trained military “suggesting”, at gunpoint, that he resign.

HRW Director Kenneth Roth went even further, noting that elected president Morales having to flee the country is a refreshing step forward for democracy, and that Morales was “the casualty of a counter-revolution aimed at defending democracy … against electoral fraud and his own illegal candidacy”.
Roth also presented President Morales as an out-of-touch “strongman” and claimed that Morales had ordered the army to shoot protesters, but didn’t provide any evidence for this allegation: https://www.mintpressnews.com/human-righ...ia/262887/


On the evening of 18 November, Bolivia’s government sent in helicopters, tanks and heavily armed soldiers to break the protests at and blockade of the Senkata gas plant in the indigenous city of El Alto. On 19 November, all hell broke loose when the soldiers began tear-gassing and then shot into the crowd of peaceful protesters. Some were just walking to work when they were struck by bullets.

At least dozens of people were taken to local clinics with bullet wounds of which 8 confirmed dead. A grieving mother whose son was shot cried out: “They’re killing us like dogs”.
The 21 November peaceful funeral procession to commemorate the dead was also tear-gassed.

For some reason our wonderful media hasn’t given much publicity to this event (and instead reported that the army overthrew Morales because HE had ordered to shoot protesters)…
The Anez administration threatened journalists if they cover protests. Bolivia’s main TV station reported only 3 deaths and blamed the violence on the protesters, showing a speech by new Defence Minister Fernando Lopez, who lied that the soldiers did not fire “a single bullet” and claimed that “terrorist groups” had tried to use dynamite to break into the gasoline plant: https://www.globalresearch.ca/they-killi...lp/5695714
