Urgent update on the coup in Bolivia from Anya Parampil
The Grayzone on Nov 12, 2019
Bolivia’s military coup has demolished the country’s democratic process. Anya Parampil explains why a November 13 vote in the Bolivian senate is so crucial.
The vote takes place a day after an unknown opposition lawmaker, Jeanine Áñez, declared herself president of the senate and country without any democratic mandate. Meanwhile, state security forces have launched an intimidation campaign against lawmakers of the ruling MAS party, which controls a vast majority of senate seats, preventing them from resisting the coup.
Anya takes aim at the Organization of American States (OAS) for the central role it played in the coup and enabling the systematic destruction of Bolivia’s democratic systems in the name of regime change.
