Bolivia’s interim government wants military Israel to help local authorities fight “terrorism” in the Latin-American country, the interior minister told Reuters on Friday, December 6, alleging plots by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and other leftists to destabilize the coup government. Without providing details, Arturo Murillo said Bolivian police “were investigating radical leftists, allegedly linked to Maduro, who had instigated deadly unrest” in the country after President Evo Morales was forced by the army to leave the country last month.


The “International Communication Congress”, gathered in the City of Caracas, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, from December 2 to 4, 2019, approves the following Resolution of solidarity with Latin America, the Caribbean and especially with the people of Venezuela, on the basis of the following considerations:

The imperialist policy of the White House develops, in collusion with the governments of the Lima Group and the criminal complicity of the Organization of American States (OAS), a plan of domination in Latin America and the Caribbean through coups d’états, the militarization of the region and the threat of the use of force against the peoples who exercise their right to self-determination and advocate an alternative model to neoliberalism.

“It is the extinction of life on planet Earth what we are facing”. warned Monday the Sector Vice-president of Communication, Tourism and Culture, Jorge Rodríguez, during the celebration of the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Emergency (COP25) 2019, in Madrid, Spain.

He recalled that Commander Hugo Chávez Frías emphasized the need to change the predatory capitalist system to contribute to the improvement and care of the environment and humanity.

The spaces of the Teresa Carreño Theater in Caracas were the scene this Monday of the “Panel of Communicators: Coverage of conflicts with class vision”, an anteroom to the International Communication Congress to be held in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The panel, which is part of the activities agreed upon the XXV edition of the Sao Paulo Forum, was conceived as an open space with attenders linked to the area in which, various communicators, recognized for their journalistic coverage in various conflicts in the continent, reasoned about the exercise of communication in the current political, economic and social conditions.

The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, spoke Friday at the International Congress of Young People and Students, held in Caracas, where he congratulated the effort to articulate the activity and welcomed foreign participants.

“You are at the epicenter of the transformations, of the resistance, but also Venezuela is the epicenter of the offensive. We have not been content to be resisting, and look that they have attacked us: attempted coup, threat of invasion, economic blockade, attempted assassination; but we are not on the defensive, we are resisting when appropriate, but we are on offense”, he said at the event.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) strongly rejects the consummation of the coup d'état in Bolivia against President Evo Morales, his government, the democratic constitutionality and the Bolivian people.

As the CPPC has previously pointed out, this is yet another step towards the execution of the destabilization agenda commanded from Washington against the peoples and countries that in Latin America and the Caribbean have been leading processes of affirmation of sovereignty, social progress and cooperation

Tomorrow, a national strike has been called for in Colombia by a broad sector in civil society to protest against the government’s policies, the lack of progress in the implementation of the peace agreement with FARC-EP, the situation of violence, which affects indigenous and rural communities, the lack of guarantees for social leaders and ex-combatants, and corruption.

Organisations and social movements warn of the risk of excessive use of force by members of the security forces during demonstrations, of massive and generalized detentions of people exercising their right to demonstrate and the stigmatization of the sectors calling for strike by members of the governing party, which endangers social leaders. Between January and September 2019 there have been more than 100 murders of human rights defenders, and in October alone 11 indigenous leaders have been assassinated.

In Bolivia, since the general elections of 20 October, violent riots and demonstrations have been taking place, in which officials and activists allied with Morales and his MAS political party were beaten and their houses, plus government property, were burned. Despite his electoral victory by securing more than 40% of the electorate's vote and recording a 10% margin between him and his nearest challenger, on November 10, Evo Morales announced that he was stepping down from his position to calm down the political climate in the country. Following the example of Juan Guaidó in Venezuela, the arch-conservative Jeanine Añez declared herself "transitional president" in La Paz, too. The USA and Brazil immediately recognized her, and thus also the breach of the constitution. As developments rapidly evolved into another US-backed coup d'état, Communist Parties raised their voice to condemn the imperialist intervention and to express their solidarity with the people of Bolivia.

PAME, a member of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), expresses its solidarity with the people of Colombia and the November 21 General Strike against the anti-labor measures of the Duque government.

The Colombian government is promoting a series of anti-workers’ measures aimed at further privatizing of social Insurance and Healthcare, while imposing more flexible labor relations with victims primarily the young workers. The anti-workers’ policy of the Colombian Government is combined with repression, persecution, assassinations of workers, trade unionists, people’s militant.

The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, said that in Bolivia a Nazi-fascist sector has been imposed and it’s massacring the people, after the coup d’etat was consummated in the highlands, on November 10.

After the persecutions and threats of the de facto government that the Bolivian ultra-right tries to impose, chaired by Senator Jeanine Áñez, who proclaimed herself interim president, the Head of State ordered the withdrawal of Venezuelan diplomatic personnel in Bolivia, who arrived in the country Saturday night.

We energically denounce the invasion of the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela this Wednesday, 13th of November, in Brasília, by a group of provocative and violent supporters of the putschist, self-proclaimed Venezuelan president Juan Guaidó. This is a criminal act and a very grave violation of international law, which guides the diplomatic relations between sovereign States.

Even more serious is that the extreme-right Government in Brazil, presided by Jair Bolsonaro, is conniving with the act. Previously, the Brazilian government had arbitrarily decided to welcome the representatives of the Venezuelan putschism in Brazil, giving the agrément to a false Ambassador to Brazil.
