Hundreds of Argentines and Bolivians took the streets of Buenos Aires today from the Buenos Aires Obelisk to the headquarters of that sister nation's embassy in support of President Evo Morales, who denounced an attempted coup d'etat.
'One, two, three, Evo again', 'Evo is not alone', shouted the protesters who covered the busy street of Corrientes with flags of both nations, of the original peoples and the ringing of the background drums, in defense of newly elected president.
'Sisters and brothers, our democracy is at risk due to the coup d'etat that violent groups have launched that undermine the constitutional order. We denounce this attack on the rule of law before the international community, 'Morales said in a message on his account on social networks.
Several human rights groups, representatives of social movements and especially a large number of Bolivians residing in this country, went out to support Evo and advocated respect for democracy.
We have won in the elections, at the polls cleanly, we have given him the opportunity to audit the votes. The Bolivians, the majority, the working class, have won the rich, the oligarchs, shouted from a speaker a representative of the community of that South American country in Argentina.
While background songs were heard like 'oh, oh, Evo does not leave', others repudiated the action of the right in Bolivia and rejected the escalation of violence by opposition groups.
