Former Bolivian President Evo Morales threatened to form armed terrorist groups on Monday to take back control of his country from the constitutionally legitimate government that took over following his resignation last year.
Morales, who led Bolivia since 2006, resigned last November after an independent audit by the Organization of American States (OAS) found significant evidence that his government committed fraud to win the October presidential race. Morales was not constitutionally allowed on the ballot but pushed through a court decision declaring he had “human rights” to run for president again despite term limits.
Country - Mexico - Fear - Safety - Asylum
After fleeing the country to Mexico for alleged fear for his safety, he eventually received asylum in Argentina where he is currently living to avoid arrest. He has repeatedly made clear his intention to wrestle back control of Bolivia from President Jeanine Áñez, who is leading an interim government until elections are held in May.
“In a short time, I don’t know if I’d go back or somebody goes back, we have to organize, like in Venezuela, people’s armed militias,” Morales said on Sunday in an interview with Radio Kawsachun Coca. Venezuela has a number of armed militias loyal to Nicolás Maduro who travel around cities and particularly poor neighborhoods terrorizing people into showing loyalty to the socialist regime.
Twitter - Monday - Morales - Democracy - Bolivia
Posting on Twitter Monday, Morales also pledged to “take back democracy” in Bolivia.
“I mark two months far from my beloved homeland. We arrived in Mexico shattered, however today we have the strength to return to Bolivia,” he wrote. “That resilience comes from the people, the Wiphala and the pollera,” he said. “We will struggle against racism and discrimination, and we will take back democracy.”
Wiphala - Official - Flags - Plurinational - Republic
The Wiphala is one of two official flags of the Plurinational Republic of Bolivia, representing its dozens of indigenous communities. The pollera is a traditional indigenous skirt.
