Bolivia's legislature is preparing charges against Añez and numerous key ministers, for their involvement in the massacres of indigenous protesters just after the coup. Others will face charges for corruption in the purchase of tear gas and Covid19 ventilators.

Bolivia's far-right praying outside a military base in Santa Cruz as they formally ask for a second military coup, to stop the MAS taking power. The dying screams of authoritarian neoliberalism in the country.

Here Bolivia's coup "president" Jeanine Áñez claims Bolivia's Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party is seeking to "judge those who think differently," because they want to try her and her coup ministers for massacring protesters. Euphemism of the century

This hilariously revealing 2018 article, in a mainstream right-wing Bolivian newspaper, discusses how there was a de facto alliance between Trotskyites and fascist supporters of Jair Bolsonaro in opposing the referendum to allow Evo Morales to be reelected

Here is the same wealthy far-right businessman in Bolivia's financial center of Santa Cruz calling openly for a dictatorial "military junta." This fascist ideology is widespread among Bolivia's far-right forces in Santa Cruz, which were the muscle behind the US-backed 2019 coup

Never trust imperial NGO liberals in Latin America whose "pro-democracy" groups are funded by CIA-linked billionaire foundations that grease the gears of US regime-change operations, like . All they do is provide fake "left" cover for murderous US imperialism

This imperial NGO liberal who spread endless lies about Evo and provided fake "left" cover for the US-backed fascist coup here in Bolivia denies the role of lithium. His "Democracy Center" has been funded by CIA-linked Rockefeller Bros Fund and billionaire anti-communist Soros

This is the new McCarthyism, in the new cold war on China. This ridiculous, bogus propaganda was created by a warmongering Australian military cutout funded by the US government, NATO, and Western weapons corporations, all of which want war with China:

Fascists in the right-wing financial center of Bolivia, Santa Cruz, are openly calling for overturning the massive landslide victory of the indigenous-led Movement Toward Socialism party in the election, and instead installing a full-on fascist military dictatorship.

We traveled to rural Bolivia to meet Patricia Arce, an ex mayor who was publicly tortured during a US-backed coup last November. She is now a senator from the indigenous-led MAS party, which just won the elections in a landslide. 📽 Full video here:

Venezuela says its scientists have discovered a highly effective treatment capable of eliminating COVID-19, and is presenting it to the World Health Organization (WHO) for certification. (Will the USA sanction it and try to prevent it from being used?)

O sea, es decir que los gobiernos socialistas de la Troika de Resistancia (Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua) debilita al imperialismo y por lo tanto abre mucho espacio para la izquierda en otros países (México, Argentina, Bolivia, y potencialmente Chile y Ecuador)
