Ricardo Angel Cardona,
Today it is the same in respect to the Bolivarian Revolution in
The attempts to proclaim autonomies in the departments of
But, just as in other parts of the world, the geostrategists from the north are interested in dividing countries that are rich in hydrocarbons, and rebelling against the established order and North American peace. Groups of oligarchic power would prefer to divide the country to satisfy their own interests, rather that conciliate with the national government of Evo. That is why the working people, conscious of the need to maintain the unity of the homeland have risen up, with marches and popular cabildos to isolate the quisling prefects.
The people are aware that there exists a favourable international context for their aspirations to rise up out of poverty and nationalise political power, which today is subjugated by the nefarious influence of the empire. The
Bolivarian Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Bolivia make up ALBA, or the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, which has as its mission the establishment of economic, financial, social, cultural, human and spiritual flow between nations.

Bolivia could double it GDP from 12,000 million in little time, as long as ALBA integration included bold policies for joint investigations, investment in mixed enterprises, accelerated industrialisation, intensive trade in food and manufactured goods, refining of petroleum and petrochemicals. Still to be put forward is the construction of a steel city, integrated with Mutun, by Bolivarian Venezuela becoming a partner of COMIBOL and ESM to produce minerals, iron, steel and laminates for different uses.
Another similarly transcendental possibility is in energy planning, with the exportation of gas to all of
Bolivarian revolution would permit the creation of thousands of popular universities and industrial or technological schools of production, to place technical knowledge, for all branches and sectors, within the reach of each Latin American citizen and campesino. With the Bolivarian revolution knowledge would no longer be a mystery and it should reach youth and adults equally via the dual system of theory and practice at the same time.
This Latin American vision is counterposed to savage capitalism, and frightens the US and its multinationals, accustomed as they are to just seeing poor, highly indebted countries, with quisling bourgeoisies and oligarchies tied to their interests. When they look at this dignified, sovereign, independent Bolivia united, by a concrete treaty of integral integration like ALBA, with Bolivarian Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, they being to move their internal servants, or separatist prefects, to impede the Bolivarian democracy of the free and sovereign peoples continuing to grow and exercising popular and protagonist power. The national government needs more cadres and mass media to inform all Bolivians and Latin Americans of this reality.
