Bolivian coup comes less than a week after Morales stopped multinational firm's Lithium deal

"Bolivia's lithium belongs to the Bolivian people. Not to multinational corporate cabals."
by Eoin Higgins
The Sunday military coup in Bolivia has put in place a government which appears likely to reverse a decision by just-resigned President Evo Morales to cancel an agreement with a German company for developing lithium deposits in the Latin American country for batteries like those in electric cars.

"Bolivia's lithium belongs to the Bolivian people," tweeted Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins. "Not to multinational corporate cabals."

The coup, which on Sunday resulted in Morales resigning and going into hiding, was the result of days of protests from right-wing elements angry at the leftist Morales government. Sen. Jeanine Añez, of the center-right party Democratic Unity, is currently the interim president in the unstable post-coup government in advance of elections.

ISIS was created, armed and funded by US/Israel & it's an open secret

The Last American Vagabond
The US government armed Osama Bin Laden; it armed Saddam Hussain with chemical weapons to be used against Iran in 1980; it armed the very groups that later became ISIS. Yet we are sold an entirely different yarn by the US government and its lap dog MSM. James Corbett, once and for all, demonstrates who is actually responsible for the creation and the rise of ISIS. 

Βολιβία: «Πραξικόπημα», αυτή η απαγορεύμενη λέξη

Απαγορευμένη λέξη αποτελεί και πάλι για τα διεθνή μέσα ενημέρωσης που καλύπτουν τις εξελίξεις στη Βολιβία o όρος «πραξικόπημα». Όπως φαίνεται, δεν τους αρκεί το γεγονός ότι ο πρόεδρος της χώρας, Έβο Μοράλες, εξωθήθηκε σε παραίτηση, ύστερα από παρέμβαση του αρχηγού γενικού επιτελείου στρατού.
του Άρη Χατζηστεφάνου

Δεν συγκινούνται ούτε από το γεγονός ότι κυβερνητικά στελέχη και μέλη τη εκλογικής επιτροπής συλλαμβάνονται από τους πραξικοπηματίες, ενώ τα σπίτια αρκετών πολιτικών (συμπεριλαμβανομένου του προέδρου) πυρπολούνται ή καταστρέφονται από ομάδες ακροδεξιών που στηρίζουν τη χούντα.
Τα διεθνή media έχουν φτάσει στο σημείο να αποκρύπτουν αποσπάσματα από το τελευταίο διάγγελμα του Μοράλες, στο οποίο καταγγέλλει το πραξικόπημα, προκειμένου να προβάλλουν μια εικόνα κανονικότητας και συνταγματικής νομιμότητας. Οι εξελίξεις, όμως, έχουν όλα τα χαρακτηριστικά ενός πραξικοπήματος, το οποίο εξυφαίνονταν για χρόνια, με ενεργή παρέμβαση των ΗΠΑ.

LIVE: Bolivians resist military coup in La Paz

Bernie finally condemns the coup in Bolivia, turns slowly to the right direction towards his progressive allies in Latin America

globinfo freexchange
We already pointed out Bernie Sanders' wrong position on several foreign policy matters, especially concerning Latin America. His latest completely unacceptable response was when a corporate stooge pushed him to admit that Nicolas Maduro is a dictator. Bernie did something even worse. He called the legitimate president of the country a "vicious tyrant". 
Others, like Roger Waters, tried to warn him too. 
Immediately after the coup against the democratically elected President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, many Leftist leaders around the world didn't hesitate to condemn it.
Among them, the newly freed, former Brazilian President and political prisoner, Lula da Silva. In Europe, even moderates, like the former Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, rushed to side with Morales. And Jeremy Corbyn didn't hesitate to do the same, despite that he has a very crucial election ahead and the corporate media seek the slightest excuse to attack him.
And this is only a small…

Ousted Bolivian President Evo Morales thanks Mexico for saving his life, pledges to carry on fight despite coup

Bolivia’s ousted socialist president, Evo Morales, has credited Mexico with saving his life, after the country offered him political asylum following his resignation from government.

"I am very grateful to the president and the Mexican people, because he saved my life,” Morales said on Tuesday, after he arrived in Mexico City to claim political asylum. Unaccounted for in recent days, Morales decried the “coup” against him, and recounted how a member of his once-loyal military was offered $50,000 to turn him in to the opposition on Sunday.
Morales was re-elected to the presidency in October, in an election result that opposition leaders called fraudulent. Though he offered to hold fresh elections, protests continued and Morales stepped down on Sunday following a police and military mutiny.

Nevertheless, the socialist leader – who presided over Bolivia through a period of relative stability and economic growth – vowed to remain politically active in exile.

As long as I have life,…

The edge of Democracy: Lula is freed in Brazil in victory for movement to resist Bolsonaro

Democracy Now!
In Brazil, former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was freed from prison Friday after 580 days behind bars. Lula’s surprise release came after the Brazilian Supreme Court ruled to end the mandatory imprisonment of people convicted of crimes who are appealing their cases.

He was serving a 12-year sentence over a disputed corruption and money laundering conviction handed down by conservative Judge Sérgio Moro, an ally of current far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, and has long maintained his innocence.

Lula has vowed to challenge Bolsonaro in the 2022 elections. At the time of his imprisonment in April 2018, Lula was leading the presidential polls. A new documentary, “The Edge of Democracy,” chronicles the imprisonment of Lula and impeachment of former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. It also looks at the aftermath of the rise of President Jair Bolsonaro — a former military captain who glorifies Brazil’s past military regime, denies the climate crisis an…

China’s gold-backed crypto looming as ‘Pearl Harbor type event’ for US dollar in 2020

There are two economies in the United States, says RT’s Keiser Report, the real economy, where the 99 percent live, and the one-percent economy, where bankers and the corporate elite live.

Consumers are spending and life is going on,” whereas on Wall Street one can see “non-stop interventions, quantitative easing is needed, interest rates were cut again this week for the top one percent,” Stacy Herbert says.

There’s never enough money,” as those from the one percent “want more and more...
According to Max Keiser, there could be “a catastrophic trapdoor opening underneath the US economy.”

When China announces as a surprise its 20,000 tons of gold and a gold-backed cryptocurrency that “will kill the US dollar deader than a doornail,” it will be a “Pearl Harbor-type event and it’s coming in the next six to nine months,” he predicts.

Corbyn brands cyber attack as ‘suspicious’ after UK Labour Party’s digital systems targeted during election campaign

Jeremy Corbyn revealed he’s “suspicious” and has been left feeling “very nervous” after Labour’s digital systems became the victim of a “sophisticated and large-scale cyber attack” in the middle of a general election campaign.

The attack on Labour’s digital platforms took place on Monday, with a party spokesperson saying it had managed to slow down “some of our campaign activities,” but insisted that “no data breach occurred.

The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack which took place is designed to flood a computer server with traffic in an attempt to take it offline.

Bolivia coup led by Christian fascist paramilitary leader and millionaire – with foreign support

Bolivian coup leader Luis Fernando Camacho is a far-right multi-millionaire who arose from fascist movements in the Santa Cruz region, where the US has encouraged separatism. He has courted support from Colombia, Brazil, and the Venezuelan opposition.

Part 1
When Luis Fernando Camacho stormed into Bolivia’s abandoned presidential palace in the hours after President Evo Morales’s sudden November 10 resignation, he revealed to the world a side of the country that stood at stark odds with the plurinational spirit its deposed socialist and Indigenous leader had put forward.

With a Bible in one hand and a national flag in the other, Camacho bowed his head in prayer above the presidential seal, fulfilling his vow to purge his country’s Native heritage from government and “return God to the burned palace.

Pachamama will never return to the palace,” he said, referring to the Andean Mother Earth spirit. “Bolivia belongs to Christ.”
