One of the highlights will be Friday, when young people from La Paz will claim this original symbol, which was wronged on September 24 and again this Tuesday by followers of right-wing politician and governor Luis Fernando Camacho.
The mobilization, which will represent entities from 20 provinces in La Paz, will defend this original symbol, which was discriminated against by a group of council members that day and fell from the flagpole during the celebration of the 211th anniversary of Santa Cruz Libertarian Creek.
The Movement Towards State Socialism the day before had asked the Attorney General’s office to rule on the offensive actions carried out in Santa Cruz against the national symbol ex officio.
The members of the board of directors of that organization invoked, for example, Article 225 of the Magna Carta “to investigate acts of violation of fundamental rights, freedom of ideological pluralism, and freedom of expression.”
Representatives of the social sectors of that eastern district marched the day before to his governor with claims similar to wiphala.
The Special Confederation of Peasant Workers of the Tropic of Cochabamba condemned the anger and demanded that the Public Prosecution Office take action against Camacho and other adherents of religions such as the head of the Civil Committee of Santa Cruz, Romulo Calvo.
The government described these actions as “separatist and racist” and “anger against Wiphala”, the first of which was during the aforementioned anniversary of the founding of Santa Cruz.
Yesterday, a group of Assembly members from the Kremos party, led by Camacho, withdrew the Indigenous banner, one of the national symbols, along with the tricolor (red, yellow and green).
The allies of Camacho, one of the directors of the 2019 coup against President Evo Morales, called the “saboteurs and criminals” who placed the Levala in the government building, enshrined in the political constitution of the state.
“Not only that, the members of the Cremos Assembly have also approved a law that violates the Magna Carta and other applicable regulations and gives powers to the Plurinational Legislative Assembly,” said provincial left assembly member Hugo Valverde.
The Wivala (Aymara language term) is a seven-color quadrangular flag used by the ethnic groups of the indigenous peoples of the Andes.
