Dublin Opinion >>
Behind the constitutional legitimacy we see the oligarch backed by the USA and military.
7 installations in Santa Cruz belonging to Repsol and BP's are occupied.
100 of the 157 senators and deputies of the government have left the capital La Paz for the ancient former capital Sucre where the legislature will meet today.
Hormando Vaca Diez, acting president after the resignation of Mesa is opposed by the mayors of a Paz, Cochabamba, Sucre, Potosí, Trinidad, El Alto and Oruro.
there are 90 entry points to the country which are blockaded.
Evo Morales leader of the coca growers union, is not climbing down, its 100% nationalisation or nothing.
the Oil companies are going to court claiming their investment is endangered and "expropriated".
the USA has backed Vaca Diez's scaled down nationalisation, and his approval of the use of the army to restore order. (this is how military rule begins)
the council of bishops led by Cardenal Archbishop Julio Terrazas Sandoval, a Redemptorist have last night made a statement calling for elections and opposing the presidential ambitions of Vaca Diez from the town of Alto.
the Aymara farmers groupings have further radicalised and are closing the roads, there is now a "territoriality" question. The legislature has left the capital where key bildings are occupied by protesters for a symbolic other city. The players are making their moves from yet another city in the provinces.
The Venezualans (who like Bolivia are a petrochemical producing nation) have accused Vaca Diez of seeking US support for a his illegal control of the state, these ideas are being widely reported, and include accusations of bribery of key army officers to support an imminent militarised regime.
(these two communication lines are cross-referencing)
We have a situation where those on the side of moral and ethical rights, have joined against those of capitalism, and the ancient oligarchy of south american ranchers who first dealt with the U$A on the collapse of the hispanic empire and the failure of the first bolivarian states feel that their rule backed by soldiers on the verge of a civil war might be considered legitimate in the wider world.
The Bolivian people did not elect Vaca Diez as their president. For him to rule till 2007 is unacceptable and must be seen for what it is-
more updates as they come-
(I'm now going to attend a bolivian consul demonstration & talk to local bolivians, & let you know what they say)
