MADRID, Nov. 10 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, has condemned the “coup d'etat” which, according to him, has been victimized by his Bolivian counterpart, Evo Morales, while calling for mobilization to defend the natives of that country.
“We categorically condemn the consummate coup d'etat against the president brother” Morales, Maduro wrote on his Twitter.
“The social and political movements of the world declare ourselves in mobilization to demand the preservation of the life of the Bolivian native peoples victims of racism,” he added.
In this sense, the Venezuelan leader has warned that Morales's life “is in danger”, so he has asked to “save Evo Morales because the fascists are fascists.” “With their racism and hatred they believe it is time to end Evo's life,” he said in statements to the state news network VTV.
“Let's raise the flag of the defense of democracy in Bolivia, let's not accept this coup d'etat and take care of the life of fellow Evo Morales who is in danger,” he insisted.
Given the possibility that the hitherto president of Bolivia will be arrested by opponents, Maduro has stressed that it is necessary to conduct a vigil to protect the physical integrity “of the great South Indian leader.”
According to the Venezuelan news agency AVN, the president has also accused the Organization of American States (OAS) of being part of the alleged coup. Meanwhile, the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) has convened a great day of mobilizations in rejection of what happened in the neighboring country.
“This has nothing to do with trade union movements, that has to do with bourgeois movements,” said the vice president of the formation, Diosdado Cabello.
Morales, the first indigenous president of his chosen country in 2006, has submitted his resignation this Sunday after the irregularities detected by the OAS in the recount of said elections, in which the president had proclaimed his victory despite the opposition denouncing fraud.
