La Paz: Leaders of the Bolivian march between Oruro and La Paz in defense of the government continue to add thousands of new participants during the 225 km of the route, which today enters its second day.

The social sectors of this city will join the so-called Homeland March between the two departments, which began on Monday to arrive here on November 29, Andres Flores, deputy and representative of Yungas, informed.

He added that the convoy of La Paz will join the crowd as soon as it arrives that day at Government House to support President Luis Ars and Vice President David Chuquihuanca.

The Movement to Socialism (MAS) lawmaker noted that thousands of protesters had left the previous day from the Caracolo municipality in Oruro, in a move that defends democracy and defies “any attempt to destabilize”.

The beginning of the march was led – he emphasized – President Ars, Vice-President Chuquihuanca, and the leader of the MAS – the political instrument of the sovereignty of the peoples, Evo Morales.

Among the entities guiding the mobilization, Flores said, are the Central Bolivian Obrera and the Unity Charter, made up of entities such as the Confederación Sindical Única de Trabajadores Campesinos.

Also participating in the march are the National Union of Indigenous Peasant Women – Bartolina Sessa, and the Union of Indigenous Multicultural Communities, according to the Bolivian Information Agency.

The list of social institutions that make up the March of the Fatherland – source details – include the National Council of Ilos, Marcas del Colasuyo, and the Confederation of Indigenous Peoples of the Bolivian East.

The Arce called on Bolivians, especially those who make up the massive Oruro-La Paz rally, to maintain unity in the face of opposition attacks.

The president warned that the right was working to divide the country and organizations, and stressed that this mobilization would show popular cohesion.

The first president endorsed the democratic commitment to resolving problems and disagreements through voting, as in the October 2020 elections with the Arce-Choquehuanca formula that won more than 55% of the vote.

Arce during the beginning of the march rejected the federalization proposal from the governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, and denounced that the Oath was thus practicing another type of project to divide the people.

The right-wing politician presented to the press an initiative in this regard to the Andean country and announced that he would begin the process of socialization and consultation on this idea with the administrations, municipalities, universities and social sectors.

Central Executive Secretary of the Bolivian Obrera, Juan Carlos Huarache, warned that Camacho’s proposal was an “attempt to divide the people”.
