Bolivians demand expulsion of the US chargé d’affaires (+Photos)

La Paz, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) Hundreds of Bolivians gathered in front of the Embassy of the United States to demand the expulsion of the Chargé d'affaires Debra Hevia.

“We demand the expulsion of Debra Hevia, charge d’affaires of the United States in Bolivia, for not respecting (Bolivia’s) sovereignty and her interventionist nature in our country (…),” a statement read before the protesters said.

According to the statement, which was delivered to the press, this measure is necessary to “avoid one more coup d’état, conceived from her office, and safeguard our democracy.”

Another demand is the “immediate end of all aggression, blockade and genocide in the Gaza Strip.”

The demonstrators ratified the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to free self-determination and to an independent and sovereign State with pre-1967 borders.

“We demand an end of the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba in accordance with dozens of resolutions approved at the United Nations General Assembly,” the statement added.

Yet another demand was Cuba’s removal from Washington’s “unilateral list” of states sponsors of terrorism.

The leaders of the mobilization called on all left-wing revolutionary and progressive organizations, youths, and social and popular movements to defend democracy and sovereignty “in the face of decadent Yankee imperialism.”

The protesters declared themselves in “emergency and permanent mobilization against any threats of a coup d’état and/or destabilization within our national territory and in defense of our democratic Popular Government.”
