Bolivia hosts Wikileaks ‘mirror’ site

Bolivian Vice-President Alvaro Garcia Linera has posted all US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks that pertain to Bolivia on his official website, the Associated Press said on December 8.

Garcia Linera said he wanted people to know the “barbarities and insults” of what he called Washington's “interventionist infiltration”.

The Bolivian government, headed by left-wing President Evo Morales, has faced US-backed attempts to overthrow it. In September 2008, Morales expelled the US ambassador.

Secret cables released by Wikileaks have confirmed allegations from Latin American leaders that the US has sought to isolate and undermine governments that challenge US domination of the region.

Wikileaks “mirror” sites have been set up around the world by supporters of the whilstleblowing in response to attacks on Wikileaks’ site.
