US govt’s Summit of the Americas fails: Boycott by presidents of Mexico, Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala

As the US government’s Summit of the Americas opens in Los Angeles, California, the presidents of Mexico, Bolivia, Honduras, and Guatemala have refused to attend, protesting the exclusion of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.

Guatemala’s president also chose to skip the conference. This means heads of state representing Latin American countries with a total population of more than 200 million pe...

Bolivia: Right wing, corporate media rush to defense of convicted dictator Añez

Credit — ANSWER Coalition Powerful U.S. figures are rushing to the defense of former Bolivian dictator Jeanine Añez after she was sentenced to 10 years in prison for her involvement in a 2019 U.S.-backed military coup. Añez declared herself “interim president” following the ouster of democratically-elected president Evo Morales by far-right paramilitary gangs and the armed forces.  Now, right wing political forces in Bolivia and around the world are outlandishly trying to portray her conviction as an act of political persecution. Major corporate media outlets are attempting to build sympathy for Añez, with the New York Times for instance reporting that her convictio...

Bolivia: Union Sectors Begin Dialogue Over Law No. 1386

The Law seeks to fight illicit profits and the financing of terrorism; however, trade unions consider it is an instrument to persecute the informal sector or allow arbitrarities. In Bolivia, representatives from President Luis Arce's government and trade union sectors set up a round table to discuss Law no. 1386, which seeks to establish a legal framework to combat illicit enrichment and terrorism.  RELATED: ‘We Won't Allow Another Coup’, Bolivian President Arce Warns Previously, Union sectors unleashed an indefinite strike in at least four cities in rejection of the law. They alleged that the new rule opens the possibility for using a discretionary strategy to persecute sectors such as the informal sector or arbitrarities from the Financial Investigations Unit (UIF...
