Statement of solidarity with President Evo Morales and the Bolivian people (Updated 3)

Statement of solidarity with President Evo Morales and the Bolivian people (Updated 3)

Faced with the decisions of the governments of Portugal, Spain, France and Italy to prevent the overflight and landing of the official airplane carrying the President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Evo Morales, on his return from a visit to the Russian Federation, the undersigned Parties and organizations:

1 – Vehemently condemn the decisions of the Governments of the above-mentioned countries and demand a formal apology to President Evo Morales and to the Plurinational State of Bolivia for a co-ordinated attitude which disrespected the most elementary legal principles and international conventions, and which attempted against the safety and the life of President Evo Morales.

2 – Consider that this behaviour, which has no precedent in peacetime Europe, is all the more serious since it is clearly related with the attempt by the U.S. Administration to persecute a former agent of the US National Security Agency who confirmed the existence of an international network of mass surveillance and of violation of the most elementary rights, freedoms, and guarantees of the peoples and of the sovereignty of States.

3 – Demand that the Governments of Portugal, Spain, France and Italy publicly and comprehensivly explain the details surrounding those decisions, which represent an illegal act that, from the point of view of International Law, can be considered an act of State terrorism.

4 – Condemn the cumplicity of the European Union with these illegal acts, in a display of its true nature and policies, and of its submission within the framework of NATO.

5 – Demand a clear and unequivocal condemnation of these decisions by the relevant bodies of the United Nations.

6 – Hail the States and multilateral and international organizations which have condemned these acts and call upon the peoples of Bolivia, of the above-mentioned European countries, as well as upon all peoples of the world, namely in Latin America, to express in the most diverse manner their condemnation and repudiation of such a serious affront to President Evo Morales, to the sovereignty of Bolivia and of the other peoples targeted by this decision, as well as to national and democratic rights and to the freedom of the peoples.

7 – Express their solidarity with the peoples of Portugal, Spain, Italy and France who, in their countries, fight against the policies of exploitation, oppression, national surrender and submission to the interests of imperialism.

8 – Reaffirm their commitment to continue and intensify the internationalist solidarity with all forces who, in the most diverse corners of the world, carry on the struggle against the war-mongering and authoritarian strategy of interference, targeting the social, labour, democratic and national rights of the peoples, which is being stepped up by imperialism, in the context of the ever more profound crisis of capitalism.
