There are issues that we will resolve in a short time, others will take longer, and for some we have to wait for a new Political Constitution of the State, the Vice-Minister of Autonomies, Alvaro Ruiz, told Bolivia Tv.

Among the requests of the marchers a key demand will require a reform of the Constitution, to have more seats at the national legislative hourse, the authority pointed out.

For its part, the Confederation of Indigenous Peoples of the East, Chaco and Amazon revealed that the march from Beni to Santa Cruz responds to personal interests of former leaders of those communities.

The organization recalled that the march is presided over by Adolfo Chavez and Marcial Fabricano, former leaders of the sector, ‘but now without representation because they were not elected by the legitimate indigenous groups’.

The government accompanied the marchers, who left Beni on August 25, and provided them with medicines and food so that they could develop the action in a safer way, said the executive in an official statement.
