Evo Morales continues to send messages of encouragement to the Peruvian violent groups that have come to occupy the city of < b>Lima, whose inhabitants fear that he intends to impose communism and call him “the Taliban of the Andes”.
A tweet from the “Free anti-communist group”, made up of Bolivians and Peruvians, says that the cocalero from Chapare, “after destroying Bolivia for 16 years, is now destroying the south of Peru.”
And he adds that Morales “is in the idea of building his totalitarian Aymara state . The Taliban of the Andes”.
The former Bolivian president is not silent even when battles are taking place in the historic center of Lima, and says in a tweet: “The strength of their mobilization vindicates the clamor for inclusion and the request for a refoundation of Peru with respect for equality and sovereignty over its natural resources. The path of free peoples towards their liberation is unstoppable and irreversible.”
He does not mind having been defined as “persona non grata” by the government of Dina Boluarte, nor the complaints about the presence of armed Bolivian coca growers, with names and surnames, participating in the Peruvian protests.
The portal Boliviaprensa is now repeating that Buenos Aires has become the “operations headquarters of the castrochavismo”, alluding to Morales' project to create a regional coordinator there for the coca and cocaine-producing countries.
“As well as the Peru vetoed the entry of Morales, the cocalero leader finds a sanctuary in Argentina from where he can perpetrate his criminal purposes.”
Evo Morales and Alberto Fernández< p class="paragraph">“An agenda that could never be deployed without the assistance of the Argentine government. It is unacceptable to observe how the Fernández-Kirchner Administrationendorses the conclave of groups that, under the supposed promotion of legitimate slogans, strictly hide a purpose to remove (sic) the constitutional authorities of the democratic countries of the region.”
Complaint the publication that by promoting the status of “plurinational” States, as Bolivia has been since 2009, Morales wants to promote the emergence of separatist efforts of the native peoples of the region. The idea of incorporating the term “plurinational state” into the new constitution was proposed by the Spanish advisers of Podemos.
All of this occurs when President Luis Arce is at risk of being expelled from the Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS) party, as proposed by congressman < b>Héctor Arce, very close to Morales.
Arce announced that on Tuesday, January 24, he will also be in Buenos Aires to attend the meeting of the CELAC, one day after the creation of the “coordinator” of Evo Morales.
On Monday the 23rd, Arce will deliver a message to the country and it is likely that he will change some ministers and announce very severe economic measures, such as the increase in fuel prices, according to the rumors that have flooded La Paz . The possibility of Arce announcing the adoption of a gradual currency devaluation system is also mentioned. Both measures could provoke social protests.
But the geography of the Taliban in the Andes has very serious problems, which the promoters of Afghanistan they do not want to admit.
Indeed, Arce repeats that Bolivia's economy is the best in the world, but a report by the FAO, released this week in Rome, says that hunger has grown in South America, and that Bolivia is the third most affected country, after Venezuela and Ecuador, within of the geography that interests Morales.
Says the report published by El País: “The number of hungry people doubled in South America between 2015 and 2021, from 17.2 million to 34.2 million, according to the report Regional Panorama of Food and Nutrition Security in Latin America published on Wednesday by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).”
Morales's followers, in addition to all this, blame the Arce government for the fall in the price of coca. They do not mention that the price of cocaine has also fallen so as not to admit that they produce it, but it is a known thing in Chapare.
For the moment, the government continues to imprison the leaders of the Santa Cruz protest for the arrest of the governor, Luis Fernando Camacho. A leader of the Cruceñista Youth Group was arrested, while judges who obey the government rejected a petition for habeas corpus filed by Camacho's lawyers.
The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rightsdecided to leave Bolivia. The representative, Antonio Menéndez de Zubillaga, said that for now he cannot comment on the reason for this abandonment, but the opposition says that it was the Arce government that issued an expulsion.
A “national council” scheduled for January 25 will bring together those who wanted to put an end to the Arce dictatorship, a government that, according to comments on the networks, “is already in Nicaragua< mode /b>”.
