ALBA-TCP held the X Extraordinary Summit in support of Bolivia

In the virtual meeting, representatives of the member countries expressed their rejection of the attempt to break the constitutional thread of that country.

This Wednesday the 10th Extraordinary Summit of Alba-TCP took place, whose main motivation was the rejection of the attempted coup d'état against the government of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, chaired by Luis Arce, and in support of this administration in the face of a new attempt to break with democracy in that country.

The meeting, which was held virtually, brought together presidents, chancellors and diplomatic representatives of the Alba-TCP member countries, who presented their support for the Arce government and expressed their wishes for respect for democratic institutions.

The Bolivian president denounced in his speech that some media outlets have lent themselves to the theory of an alleged self-coup, which the president referred to as “spreading falsehoods.”

He added that “there are more than 100 people involved, including active, passive and civilian soldiers” in the coup attempt, and highlighted the deep democratic vocation of the Bolivian people “who massively called themselves to the streets to defend democracy and the legitimate government.”

At the same time, Arce thanked the international community for rejecting and condemning this attempt to break the constitutional thread. “We are deeply grateful to them,” declared the president.

He made it clear that as long as he and his team are in government, they will not abandon “the Great House of the People and the people of whom we are leaders.”

He questioned that “disinformation and orchestrated campaigns seek to erode trust in the legitimate and constitutional government. Through fake news, the right and conservative nationalism seek to impose the matrix that it was not a coup, that it was a self-coup, just as they said the victory of then-president Evo Morales in 2019 was fraud,” he said.

He launched a categorical rejection of those who promote this narrative and said that “they represent interests that are alien to the interests of the government and the Plurinational State of Bolivia and the Bolivian people themselves.”
