'Bolivia resumes the democratic path,' says CLACSO
Buenos Aires, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) The Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO) sent on Wednesday its embrace to the Bolivian people for their strong support for the return to the path of democracy, after the victory of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS).
In a statement, the Steering Committee of that regional institution added to the multiple congratulations sent by different groups and governments to the virtual new Bolivia's President, Luis Arce and his formula for the Vice-Presidency, former Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca.
CLACSO recalled that on November 11, 2019, the organization unequivocally denounced the coup and made 'a call to preserve the lives of Bolivians, to cease attacks and persecutions and to find a peaceful and dialogue solution, based on the will of the people's majority and their legitimate institutions.'
A difficult road of reconstruction awaits Bolivia. To achieve so, it has the broad popular support expressed at the polls and with the solidarity of those of us who fight for democracy and justice in Latin America, the Caribbean and the world, the statement stressed.
Finally, CLACSO notes that only in this way will it be possible to overcome the 11 months of abuses and economic policies behind the backs of the interests of Bolivian women and men.
Headquartered in Buenos Aires, the Council brings together over 680 research centers in 51 countries of the continent.
