Resist, so that tomorrow we can fight again
Today, November 10, the humble, the workers, the Aymaras and Quechuas, begin the long path of resistance, to defend the historic achievements of the first indigenous government, which ended today with the forced resignation of our president Evo Morales as a result of the civic-police coup.
Let our commitment to defend nationalisation, industrialisation, public companies, social policies and symbols of the homeland be recorded in history.
Today the right and the coup plotters dragged the Whipala through the mud and with it our dignity as indigenous peoples. We will not fall to our knees, we will defend our symbols that are enshrined in the constitution.
The witchhunt of our comrades will continue in the next few days. It is our responsibility to look after each other as brothers and sisters, rebuild the social fabric, look after and protect the persecuted leaders. Today is the moment for solidarity, tomorrow will be the moment for reorganisation and to continue this struggle that has not ended with these sad events.
The slogan is resist, so that tomorrow we can fight again. Our actions are to defend the achievements of the greatest government that Bolivia has had in all its history
Homeland or death!!!
The MAS is historic, the right is a disgrace!!!
