Bolivia: Health Workers Escalate Protests and Strike in La Paz
In Bolivia, protests by health workers are escalating, amid a month-long strike in the capital La Paz. The strike and protests are part of a rising wave of dissent in Bolivia over President Evo Morales’s controversial decision to seek a fourth term in 2019, despite the Bolivian constitution permitting presidents to serve only two consecutive terms. This is protester Julia Maceda Aliaga.
Julia Maceda Aliaga: “It’s a dictatorship! Not in the worst moments of the dictatorial governments has this occurred! I say to the gentleman, Evo [Bolivian President Evo Morales], if he is a gentleman, ‘Evo, don’t provoke us. The people are angry!’”
