You would not know it from the US corporate media, but the protests against the US-supported coup in Bolivia are growing massively despite right-wing violence. The people of Bolivia have not given up.
People around the world should do all they can to stand in solidarity with the people of Bolivia against the US-supported coup. The legislature controlled by the MAS party can annual the self-appointment of the fraudulent interim coup president, urge Evo Morales to return home and direct the military and police to stand with the people against the coup and to arrest the violent right-wing mob.
Incredible scenes in #Bolivia.
Massive protest from El Alto to La Paz.
Extremely brave anti-coup protesters PROUDLY wave the Wiphala flag - symbol of indigenous resistance.
They are fighting back against fascists, the Bolivian army and US imperialism. pic.twitter.com/N8LOWvOyMP
