Bolivia: Thousands Protest Interim Government in Capital

Mass demonstrations in support of Bolivian former president Evo Morales and against his successor Jeanine Añez hit the capital La Paz on Monday.

The march was organised by the “Ponchos Rojos”, the “Bartolina Sisa” and coca farmers from the Yungas and groups from El Alto.

Footage shows demonstrators waving Whipalas and Bolivian flags and chanting slogans against Añez.

One demonstrators said the interim president should resign or they would resort “to the ultimate consequences.” Morales’ departure and Anez’s recognition by the senate as the new president increased tensions between supporters and opponents of the former indigenous leader.

According to reports, the Episcopal Conference of Bolivia (CEB), the European Union and the UN special envoy Jean Arnault summoned the government, political parties and representatives of civil society for a dialogue on Monday in order to bring calm to the country.

Earlier this month, Evo Morales announced his resignation after several weeks of protests over disputed presidential elections.
