Argentina: Thousands March in Support of Evo Morales in Buenos Aires

Thousands gathered in Buenos Aires’ Plaza de Mayo to show their support for former Bolivian president Evo Morales on Monday.

Footage shows the demonstrators, many carrying Bolivian and Whipalas flags, marching, dancing and playing musical instruments during the rally.

“We are calling for an end to killings, torture, human rights violations. Let there be democracy again in Bolivia and we ask democracies around the world not to silence the condemnation of this coup,” said Hugo Yasky, Secretary General of the Central Workers of Argentina (CTA). He added that the “coup” represents a “minority, racist oligarchy, which with the Bible in its hand intends to spit on the Whipala flag.”

Earlier this month, Evo Morales announced his resignation after several weeks of protests over the results of Bolivia’s October 20 elections. Opposition Senator Jeanine Anez declared herself interim president in a session of Parliament after Morales fled to Mexico.

Morales’ departure and Anez’s recognition by the Senate as the new president increased tensions between supporters and opponents of the former leader.
