The following statement was previously published on the Black First Land First website:
Black First Land First (BLF) joins the rest of the progressive forces of the world in standing with our beloved Evo Morales and rejecting the U.S. backed coup to replace him with a right-wing government. The coup is a crime against the Bolivian people.
We call on all of Bolivia’s political forces, including the people and their leaders, to act with responsibility in navigating the transition to the second elections, and deciding on the country’s future.
We echo the solidarity messages of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in “categorically condemn(ing) the consummated coup d’etat against the brother president Evo”; as well as the call of the Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel for “the world to mobilize for the life and freedom of Evo”
Long live the Bolivian People!#ElMundoconEvo (the World with Evo)
