The insult to the wiphala flag is an offense not only to the Bolivian indigenous movement but to all those who fight against racism and discrimination, the former president (2006-2019) said on Twitter.
The flag of indigenous peoples is a symbol of integration and liberation that represents equality, dignity, diversity and unity, he stressed.
Thanks to the heroic and millennial struggle of the indigenous people, Bolivia left behind the colonial, exclusive and republican state, the Aymara trade unionist, activist and leader stressed.
Those who affront the wiphala and cowardly attack our brothers show their failure in the face of history, said Morales, who emphasized that the nation is united and strengthened.
His message comes after Santa Cruz authorities, during the commemoration of the 211th anniversary of the libertarian deed in that eastern region on Friday, gave the order to lower the tricolor and the wiphala flags.
