Thousands of Bolivians Rally in La Paz in Defense of Socialist President Luis Arce

HeadlineNov 30, 2021

In Bolivia, thousands of labor and Indigenous leaders marched in La Paz Monday in support of socialist President Luis Arce, warning the world they would not allow another coup. The “March for the Homeland” was led by former Bolivian President Evo Morales, who was overthrown in November 2019 following a U.S.-backed, right-wing military coup. This is President Luis Arce. 

President Luis Arce: “Brothers, this is not the end. This is the beginning, because the people have come to defend their vote. They came to defend democracy, but they also came to tell those right-wing coup plotters there will never be coups in our country!”
