Photos: Protesters oppose coup in Bolivia

Members of the Bolivian community and Latin America solidarity activists rallied in Sydney on November 17 to oppose the coup against Bolivia’s first Indigenous President Evo Morales.

Morales was forced to resign on November 10 after senior army and police chiefs called on him to do so, following weeks of right-wing unrest and violence against his October 20 election victory.

Since then, the coup regime headed by Jeanine Anez has given security forces the green light to shoot on pro-democracy protesters, with the dead toll already at 30 people.

Speakers called on the Australian government to oppose the coup.
