Bolivian Organizations Will March for the Change

La Paz, Oct 1 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian organizations from the Unity Pact ratified Saturday that they will march on Oct. 12 to support the process of change headed by President Evo Morales since January 2006. .

The decision was made after a meeting held with Evo and Vice President Alvaro Garcia, where the current Bolivian situation was analyzed, said Ever Choquehuanca, the director of the Departmental Federation of Inter-cultural Peace Communities

The Unity Pact is made up of the Confederation of Bolivian Farm Workers (CSUTCB), the National Council of Ayllus and Markas del Qullasuyu (CONAMAQ), Bolivia's Confederation of Intercultural Communities Unions, and the National Confederation of Indigenous Farmer Women from Bolivia-Bartolina Sisa.

Meanwhile, social sectors from Santa Cruz announced a series of pro-government mobilizations, said the president of the Santa Cruz Parliamentary Brigade, Mauro Pena.

The organizations, he added, are concerned about the impacts of an indigenous walk that started on August 15 in Trinidad rejecting the construction of a route that would link Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, but marked by political tones.

Many sectors agree the protest also aims to boycott the judicial elections on Oct. 16, he stressed.
