CALL FOR THE GLOBAL MARCH FOR PEACE AND NOVIOLENCE FOR THE UN TO INTERVENE IN BOLIVIA AGAINST THE WAVE OF VIOLENCE PROMOTING THE RACIST MOVEMENT IN PROGRESS AFTER THE STATE HIT
The World March for Peace and Nonviolence calls on the international community to urgently intervene in Bolivia in order to prevent a racist massacre within the framework of the hate campaign against indigenous people and peasants promoted by the organizers of the “coup status ”occurred recently.
On the other hand it is difficult to justify the silence of the OAS before this coup d'etat, being present in Bolivia to follow up on the elections, and having recommended new elections.
We welcome that former President Evo Morales has resigned to avoid what could have been a civil war and congratulate President López Obrador of Mexico for welcoming him, while expressing our deep concern about the testimonies that come to us about acts of persecution and violence by racist groups integrated in the organization of the coup d'etat, against indigenous and peasant men and women.
We reiterate the proposal of the World March that any conflict, regardless of the level at which it occurs, is resolved by peaceful and nonviolent means.
Violence condemns peoples to retreat and suffering. Nonviolence is what opens the future.
