Hundreds of demonstrators marched in the streets of Guatemala City on Thursday, to protest against what they dubbed a ‘coup d’etat’ against Bolivia’s ex-president Evo Morales.
Morales’ supporters, including members of the Campesino Development Committee (Codeca), marched along the capital’s main avenues towards the US Embassy, carrying banners and signs amid a heavy police presence.
Morales stepped down on Sunday after weeks of unrest triggered by the disputed October 20 presidential election. Morales said he had received threats from opposition leaders and was eventually forced by the country’s military to resign.
