The First Coup Against Evo Morales is Planned for Wednesday October 11
Reliable sources from high up in the Bolivian government, who asked to remain anonymous, have revealed that the first attempt at a coup against Evo Morales is planned for this Wednesday, October 11. The use of snipers in the Huanuni massacre, that caused 7 deaths, indicates the participation of coup plotters in the miner’s dispute. Chilean military figures will be involved in the conspiracy.
Looking for killer Generals
A few weeks ago, officials from the Bolivian police approached generals from the Armed Forces of Bolivia (FAB), investigating their willingness to carry out a coup together. Just as it happened in the Chilean case with the constitutionalist General Rene Schneider, and in
Military figures never carry out a coup out of thin air, my friend General Alberto Mueller Rojas, nowadays a member of the Presidential General Staff of Hugo Chavez, told me seven years ago. It is this logic that we can see currently developing in
The institutional conspiracy
The prefects [governors] of the energy and separatist states of
They count, for course, with the support of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation – as reactionary and corrupt as the rest of their bourgeois homologous in the world – who provide the insubordination with the vindication of the crime.
In the face of the recent declaration by the Constituent Assembly to consider itself “originario, all powerful and refoundational”, that is to say, unrestricted by the existent norms in its construction of a new state, the magistrates held the position of the factious prefects. They dictated that according to constitutional rights the power of the Constituent Assembly is not “originario-refoundational” but rather “derived-reformational” and therefore subordinated to the current legislation that demands the two-thirds votes.
The social conspiracy
The civic committees count on the financing of business sectors and the collaboration of high officials from the police, for example, colonels. Their acts are inflated and spread by the private mass media, many times by the same bosses of fascist propaganda that are used in Venezuela against the government of Hugo Chavez. Some of the most important media outlets are in the hands of capitalist magnates with strong agricultural investments in the separatist provinces and who fear the government’s agrarian reform.
In the social sphere, the association of parents of families – generally reactionary and controlled by the Church in
The Chilean Model
As in Chile, the truck driver have the function of breaking the economy and public peace with a national stoppage, convoked for Wednesday of next week, with the intention of bring together all the anti-government sectors in a great destabilizing front.
Referring explicitly to the subversive stoppage of the Chilean truck drivers against Salvador Allende (1972), financed by the US CIA, three days ago Evo Morales classified the Bolivian stoppage as an “ideological” stoppage: “It is the struggle of power” said the popular leader and left clear what is at stake: “or the gamonales [elite – HD] groups or the popular movements”.
Evo is totally right, as the documents of the Church Commmittee (1976) revealed and the recent memories of the military leader of the Chilean fascist organization “Patria y Libertad”, Roberto Thierne, with his subversive collaboration with the Marine and the Chilean truck drivers in the destruction of the Popular Unity government.
The political cost of Huanuni
Making use of the armed confrontation between cooperative miners and waged miners in Huanuni, in the department of Potosi, which has left around 15 dead and more than 100 injured, the Bolivian Workers Central (COB) and the Regional Workers Central (COR) of El Alto moved dangerous towards this destabilizing front, antagonist to the government, whilst the National Federation of Cooperative Miners (FENCOMIN) broke its political alliance with the Movement Towards Socialism, the governing party.
The conflict in Huanuni has an economic origin. It comes about due to the intent by some 4000 cooperative miners from FENCOMIN, clients of the Minister for Mining Walter Villarroel, to keep for themselves the exploitation of the most wealthiest tin mine in Bolivia, Posokoni, expelling in a violent manner some 1000 waged workers who belong to the state company, COMIBOL.
FECOMIN is a predatory petty bourgeois organization which under the weak governments of Carlos Mesa and Rodriguez Veltze converted itself into an economic power and an expansionist and unethical political power. Already in May and June of 2004, they took over the mines of Caracoles and Colquiri, kicking out by force the state miners and their families.
The government of Evo was caught by surprise by the violence in Huanuni. And in front of the dilemma of on one hand killing miners with the Armed Forces or on the other being accused of “negligence” and “the absence of the state”, around 30 hours of energetic discussions occurred, converting itself in a propagandistic and political bonanza for the right. They took maximum advantage of their hegemony over the mass media and, very similarly to the media manipulation during the days of the coup in

Aborting the coup

But, a military coup is like a bank robbery: it is only successful if they maintain the element of surprise. The Bolivian subversives have lost this moment. It is an ethic responsibility to spread information on their coup plotting project in the broadest possible way, in order to abort it.
Today, more than ever, the Bolivian Revolution needs our global solidarity.
