Finally the mass uprising which has shaken Bolivia for nearly a month has managed to overthrow the gringo Goni as he is known. Faced with a mass mobilisation, which was growing stronger despite the brutal repression which caused more than 80 deaths, finally the US embassy withdrew support from their puppet. The masses must not fall for these manoeuvres. No support for the Mesa government. For a workers and peasants government.
After overthrowing the hated Goni, the workers of Bolivia have drawn one main conclusion: the workers, peasants, oppressed nations and impoverished middle classes, did not wrest power from the ruling class because they still do not have a revolutionary party.
A revolution is a situation where the masses take their destiny into
their own hands. That is precisely what we are witnessing before our very
eyes in Bolivia. On Friday 17, Sánchez de Lozada was driven from power. The
demonstrators blockaded La Paz and other cities. Soviets were formed in El Alto.
Bolivia, South America's poorest and most unstable country, had been paralysed
since mid-September by anti-government protests.
