Bolivian protests to continue until Law 1386 is repealed, protesters warn

Bolivian protesters have warned their ongoing indefinite strike declared by the Pro Santa Cruz Committee will not be lifted until the Plurinational Legislative Assembly (Congress) repeals Law 1386 on the Strategy to Fight the Legitimization of Illicit Profits.

Social leader Rómulo Calvo insisted Sunday before thousands of followers that the newly-passed piece of legislation has generated a social conflict nationwide because it entailed a “perverse intention of political persecution, of social control to subdue the population, gag people, leave them in misery and oppression.”

Calvo also pointed out that “our struggle continues, the resistance has to be orderly and sustained over time, the most important thing is to continue nurturing unity, the Bolivian people have shown that they are not willing to renounce democracy and freedom, that they will take to the streets to defend with courage.“

He also said it was the “beginning of the end, it was the murder of democracy, the beginning of a new state, of the Communist state, without freedom, without a future, they are poisoning democracy because they want a single party with a single thought. Do we want this for Bolivia?” Calvo asked the crowd.

Calvo also reminded President Luis Arce Bolivians were not just “the coca growers of the Chapare” or other specific areas in the country, that Bolivians were citizens from all over the country and that “no one gave him a license to kill democracy, let alone steal the present and future” of the population.

The social leader also warned that in addition to the laws already under criticism there was still another package of measures worthy of keeping an eye on to evaluate their repeal, such as “Law 1359 of Sanitary Emergency; Law 1387 on the Career of Generals and Promotions of the Bolivian Police; Law 1390 on Strengthening the Fight against Corruption; and Law 1398 of Trade Registry, as well as the newly-passed law on Economic and Social Development Plan 2021-2025.”

Bolivia: protestas continuarán hasta que se derogue la Ley 1386

Manifestantes bolivianos advirtieron que la huelga indefinida declarada por el Comité Pro Santa Cruz no se levantará hasta que la Asamblea Legislativa Plurinacional (Congreso) derogue la Ley 1386 sobre la Estrategia para Combatir la Legitimación de las Ganancias Ilícitas.

El dirigente social Rómulo Calvo insistió este domingo ante miles de seguidores que la legislación recién aprobada ha generado un conflicto social a nivel nacional porque conlleva una “intención perversa de persecución política, de control social para someter a la población, amordazar a la gente, dejarla en la miseria y la opresión“.

Calvo también señaló que “nuestra lucha continúa, la resistencia tiene que ser ordenada y sostenida en el tiempo, lo más importante es seguir alimentando la unidad, el pueblo boliviano ha demostrado que no está dispuesto a renunciar a la democracia y a la libertad, que tomará las calles para defender con valentía” las cosas que considera justas.

También dijo que era “el principio del fin, el asesinato de la democracia, el inicio de un nuevo estado, del estado comunista, sin libertad, sin futuro, están envenenando la democracia, porque quieren un partido único con un solo pensamiento. ¿Queremos esto para Bolivia?”, preguntó Calvo a la multitud.

El dirigente también recordó al presidente Luis Arce que los bolivianos no eran solo “los cocaleros del Chapare” u otras áreas específicas del país, que los bolivianos eran ciudadanos de toda la nación y que “nadie le dio licencia para matar la democracia, y mucho menos robar el presente y el futuro” de la población.

El líder social advirtió también que existe además otro paquete de medidas a tener en cuenta para evaluar su derogación, como la “Ley 1359 de Emergencia Sanitaria; Ley 1387 de Carrera de Generales y Ascensos de la Policía de Bolivia; Ley 1390 de Fortalecimiento de la Lucha contra la Corrupción; y la Ley 1398 de Registro Mercantil, así como la recién promulgada Ley del Plan de Desarrollo Económico y Social 2021-2025 ”.
