Bolivian workers in emergency for meeting in Santa Cruz

La Paz, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) The social sectors in Santa Cruz remain in a state of emergency and are ready to reject strike proposals promoted by power groups in the meeting convened in this department for this Friday.

An expanded meeting of the Departmental Workers’ Union (COD) in Santa Cruz made that decision regarding a possible pressure measure of this kind derived from the deliberative consultation convened by governor Luis Fernando Camacho, civic leader Rómulo Calvo and the Gabriel René Moreno Autonomous University’s rector Vicente Cuéllar.

The resolution establishes that the proposals for an indefinite or 72-hour strike should be convincingly rejected, “because they directly affect the working people and the popular classes that seek to support their families day by day.”

Jaime Flores, executive of the United Unions in Santa Cruz, assured that this sector rejects and is not willing to abide by any civic strike.

He stated that those self-employed will not abide by such measures and in case the council determines this, they will declare a state of emergency and will meet to take measures, from mobilizations to convening a council of all organizations.

Enrique Leaño, president of the Federation of Municipal Associations of Bolivia (FAM-Bolivia), described the meeting as “political” and criticized that it seeks to generate conflicts and harm the population.

He added that FAM-Bolivia sent a document to the Inter-institutional Committee for Census that included elements from a municipal approach to enrich the proposal to the National Statistics Institute (INE) dated September 14, however, was not taken into account.
