Minrex: Cuba denounces coup in progress against Evo Morales


Declaration of the Minrex

On October 20, in a
election day characterized by broad popular participation, the
 Bolivian people elected, as President of the Plurinational State of
Bolivia, to brother Evo Morales Ayma. Evo's historic victory,
against the maneuvers of the internal and regional right, Imperialism and
 an intense media war, is also a triumph of the whole country

Disregarding electoral institutions and the popular mandate
expressed at the polls, sectors of the Bolivian opposition, with the support
 and driving from the US and from regional oligarchies, they have put in
marches a coup d'etat with the aim of sneaking the people
Bolivian election result. The opposition coup strategy has
unleashed in that country intense days of violence, which have cost
deaths, hundreds of wounded and condemnable expressions of racism towards
The original peoples.

The President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, has
 declared that a coup d'etat against the President is underway
legitimate of Bolivia and that the opposition refuses to recognize its defeat
at the polls and go to violence and force against order

We strongly denounce the coup in progress against the
Legitimate President of Bolivia and we call all sectors
involved to stop this dangerous maneuver, which constitutes a
threat to the stability of Bolivia and the entire region.

We support the call of President Evo Morales Ayma, who in a
demonstration of equanimity and political stature, summoned the
political forces to a dialogue table for the peace of Bolivia called
the organizers of the violent protests to a "deep reflection" and
 He urged the people to mobilize to defend democracy.

We express the firm support of the Cuban government and people to
Brother Evo Morales Ayma, legitimate elected President of Bolivia and the
Change Process that this leads in favor of the great majority, the
which shows undeniable successes in admirable economic growth and
 in the extraordinary social advances achieved, in particular the
claim of native peoples. We call the
International Community to side with the legality and peace, in
observance of International Law and the postulates of the Proclamation of
 Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace and to condemn the adventure
 coup of imperialism and oligarchy.
