For her part, Tatiana Pérez, from the Alianza de Mujeres por Bolivia platform, confirmed the participation of her movement in the motorazo and explained that after the abrogation of the Criminal System Code, the next step of struggle is to demand that the Government respect the citizen vote of the February 21 referendum that said No to indefinite re-election.

“The struggle does not end with the abrogation of the Penal Code and we invite the people to join this fight and demand respect for our vote. On Friday we started with the motorazo where more than 60 clubs will participate,” she said.

For his part, Rómulo Calvo, of the Medical College of Santa Cruz, supported the measures and assured that the doctors will join the demonstrations in defense of the results of 21F.

“We, the health sector never lowered our arms in this fight. We believe that we are ending an important battle with the repeal of the Criminal Code, but we still need to ask that our vote be respected. We doctors have never let down our guard and we continue to mobilize to demand respect for this country that we love so much,” he said. (ANF)
