Bolivian analyst warns about plans of confrontation
La Paz, Sept 14 (Prensa Latina) Santa Cruz Governor Luis Fernando Camacho and the Civic Committee of that Bolivian department are seeking to assert their political agenda by using a group of indigenous people, according to an analysis published in Ahora el Pueblo on Tuesday.
According to analyst Hugo Siles, this political agenda is one of confrontation over land and in conflict with the administration of Luis Arce, which is why they are supporting the indigenous demonstrators who are heading towards the Santa Cruz capital without a list of demands.
Siles believes that Camacho and the Civic Committee are using these people to defend big landowners and businesspeople who quickly secured their possessions during the de facto regime of Jeanine Añez.
He added that they symbolically use indigenous people in a demonstration that is part of a selfish scheme that runs counter to any rational form of solution, negotiation and compliance with legitimate demands.
The analyst explained that the very fact that the head of Comunidad Ciudadana (Civic Community), Carlos Mesa, Creemos (We believe) legislators and other opposition politicians are supporting the indigenous demonstration and playing a role as spokespeople discredits that mobilization.
He said that this support contrasts reality because native peoples from the country's low and highlands have been historically marginalized by them.
